So, What Is Ruby Chocolate?
Swiss chocolate company, Barry Callebaut, introduced ruby chocolate in 2017, claiming that it’s made from “ruby” cacao beans found in Ecuador, Brazil and the Ivory Coast. It’s since been recognized as the fourth chocolate (along with dark, milk and white) and named “ruby” due to its reddish-pink colors.
