Does anyone know what the percentage of cacoa solids is in this bar?  It is the large gold bar with I think blue writing on it and it is 300 g .  It is larger than the excellence bars.

I also can’t find the percentage of cacoa solids in their large gold milk chocolate bar.  I have looked on their website but they only list the ingredients and not percentages of these two bars.

Thanks so much!

I have info on Lindt couverture wafers. Not sure how it compares with the bars, but the milk is 37% cocoa solids and the milk extra is 38%. The bitter-sweet is 58% and the Ecuador is 70%.

I’m sure the Lindt customer service people would be happy to help. You could try contacting them by email if there’s a link at the website. Or by telephone, if they give a number for where you live. In Canada, the toll free no. is 1 800 701-8489

Liza, you can estimate by assuming that nearly all of the non-sugar portion is chocolate mass.  The nutrition label will tell you how many grams of sugar there are in a serving, and the serving size.  For example, if the label says there are 20 grams of sugar in a 42 gram serving, then 42-20 = 22 grams of chocolate mass.  Then, 22/42 = 52% cocoa mass.  This is approximate, but may be good enough for your purposes.

Thanks so much.  I followed your calculations Julie and I calculated the chocolate to be about 50% cocoa solids.
