Ruby Azalina™ 40% - Taste the Difference
Discover Ruby Azalina™ 40%
Ruby, after white, milk and dark, is the 4th chocolate category and is not only a gift from nature, but a unique taste experience for chocolate lovers.
Our Ruby Azalina™ 40%, created by our chocolate experts here in Switzerland, harnesses the unique natural qualities of ruby cocoa beans to produce an extraordinary new sensation for chocolatiers, pastry chefs, confectioners and bakers all over the world.
Combining intense berry-fruity flavours with surprising fresh sour notes and a unique ruby colour, Ruby Azalina™ 40% opens up a whole new world of creative chocolate-craft possibilities.
The world’s finest ruby cocoa beans
Grown in traditional chocolate territories such as Brazil, Ecuador and the Ivory Coast, our exquisite ruby cocoa beans are brought to life in our Zurich factory, following the art of Swiss chocolate craftsmanship. The selection process of our rare ruby beans, together with our Swiss manufacturing expertise, allowed us to unlock the intense flavours and colour potential, which led to the creation of this unique new couverture.
Thanks to a global collaboration between the Barry Callebaut Research & Development team and the Jacobs University, over 175 years of cocoa sourcing and manufacturing expertise has gone into creating ruby chocolate – not to mention over a decade of our own development to unleash its unique characteristics.
With no added colours or fruit flavours
The ruby cocoa bean carries an intense fruity aroma, uniquely sour notes and, of course, the stunning ruby colour. To fully embrace such extraordinary natural characteristics in the ruby beans, we never add fruit flavour or colour to our Ruby Azalina™ 40% - so you can experience the most genuine flavour of this incredible chocolate.
By blending these unique beans with the richness of our Swiss milk, we create couvertures with an exceptionally soft and creamy texture - guaranteeing you the finest product for everything from classic recipes to adventurous new applications.
