What is Chocolate Bloom?

  • There are two types of bloom common to chocolate: Fat Bloom and Sugar Bloom. Fat bloom can result when chocolate is exposed to fluctuating temperatures, producing a visible dull white film at the surface. Sugar bloom is a hard white surface film resulting from exposure to moisture formed by the dissolution and subsequent crystallization of sugar on the chocolate’s surface. While fat bloom and sugar bloom affect the appearance of chocolate, the product remains perfectly safe to eat.
