Sugar-Free Chocolate from Valrhona

Xocoline - Valrhona Sugar-free Chocolate I’ve just received 3kg of Xocoline, Valrhona’s new sugar-free chocolate. We’ve been struggling to find a way to make sugar-free ice cream that is natural and meets our standards in terms of taste and consistency. Hopefully this will be a big step forward, and I’ll start playing immediately with it.

As far as sugar-free chocolates go – it is by far the best I have ever tasted. It’s fruity and sharp (65% cocoa content), and is very much a Valrhona product in terms of quality. I think there will be many interested chefs and many happy people who are on sugar-restricted diets!

Xocoline is available in Ireland through Odaios Food (trade only). Valrhona is planning to sell these as bars as well for retail customers, but as far as I know they are not available yet…

  1. Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!

    “I love chocolate. Have you ever seen a chocolate fountain? It is

    wonderful! Check this out..”

  2. I have worked in so many places where we had Valhrona and I would have to hide it somewhere as everybody would be snacking on the stuff! It is so addictive and really does give you a serious high! Best chocolate in the world in my opinion!

  3. My boyfriend is diabetic (insulin dependant) and frankly I would rather have a tiny bit of proper chocolate than the greasy sugar-free stuff he sometimes gets. (Of couse, he can really eat anything, within moderation) but if Valhrona is making sugar free chocolate it must be quality! I hope they will stock it in NZ. It looks fab 🙂

  4. in all the years I’ve been coming to your wonderful place I have never once sampled your ice cream (but plenty of your excellent coffee!) as I’m very strict with my diet. please lord next time……..

  5. It’s interesting that you say that, and I can see why. Our test batches of sugar-free ice cream have tasted very good. Without any sugar, it’s much lighter and more refreshing, and the taste of the chocolate comes out quite strong.
