Natural new options for premium products

Harnessing the natural goodness of plant extracts, Cargill has developed dark chocolate with extract of the stevia plant (Steviol glycosides), providing a new way to enjoy the sophisticated taste of rich, dark chocolate. And with 83% cocoa content, Cargill’s dark chocolate has minimal added sugar, making your most indulgent applications even more appealing.

Sweet taste from a natural source

While other brands rely heavily on sugar, our dark chocolate uses Truvia®, an award-winning, naturally sourced sweetener derived from the stevia leaf. The technique is innovative, but the results are classic: delectable tablets of dark chocolate, perfect pralines and beautiful bonbons.

A wholesome new spin on traditional dark chocolate recipes, it provides a touch of luxury to satisfy any sweet tooth, but without compromising on taste. So even sticklers for natural ingredients can now explore their dark side.
