Why is white chocolate white?


Wiki User

This is because it does not contains chocolate at all. White chocolate has cocoa butter in it which gives it a lighter color compared to other chocolates which have chocolate "tonic" ,which is the main part of what is produced when you cook the chocolate. Cocoa butter which is also in some lotions is the "creme" of the chocolate "tonic" and rises to the top when cooked.
