Discussion for: Is the white stuff on old chocolate mold?

What are your thoughts, experiences, or questions about Is the white stuff on old chocolate mold?? Whether you have a lot to say or just want to listen to others talk about their perspectives, you’re welcome to join the conversation.

  1. Yes, the white stuff you might see on old chocolate is not mold but a condition called “chocolate bloom.” There are two types: fat bloom and sugar bloom. Fat bloom happens when the chocolate’s fat separates and rises to the surface due to changes in temperature. Sugar bloom occurs when moisture interacts with the sugar in the chocolate, causing it to crystallize and appear as white spots. I’ve encountered this with improperly stored chocolates; exposure to varying temperatures can lead to this. It’s safe to eat, but the texture might be affected, resulting in a less pleasant experience. Proper storage in a cool, dry place can prevent this.
