What Distinguishes Turkish Chocolate From Others?

The most important thing about Turkish chocolate's international fame is its excellence in several aspects:

  • Innovation

Turkey is renowned for its innovation in the chocolate industry and production worldwide. Turkish chocolate-producing companies add and blend many flavours, dried fruits, and nuts in a professional way that is always innovative.

  • Most ingredients are local

Most of the Turkish chocolate ingredients are local and produced in Turkey, except for the main ingredient of chocolate, cocoa powder, which is produced from cocoa trees and is famous for its production in African and Latin American countries.

However, hazelnuts, milk, and other essential chocolate ingredients are locally produced and Turkey is renowned for producing these essential chocolate ingredients in huge quantities and high quality.

  • Halal certificate

More than 97% of Turks are Muslims. According to Islam, pork and its products in addition to alcohol are forbidden and may not be consumed. Turkish chocolate companies, therefore, do not use these substances, which are essential for chocolate production in many countries around the world.

Turkish companies replace these ingredients with other alternative ingredients that comply with Islam, making Turkish chocolate products halal.
