The primary difference between real and compound chocolate is that real chocolate is made from cocoa butter and chocolate liquor whereas the compound form is made from cocoa powder and vegetable oil. As real chocolate is made from cocoa butter, it needs to be tempered while melting. Real chocolate has better taste and texture, as a result of which it is preferred over compound chocolate in exotic confectionaries.
Compound chocolate is used in products where baking at higher temperatures is required. The growing demand for real and compound chocolate in emerging as well as densely populated countries such as India, China, and Japan will have a direct impact on the growth of the global market.
