1 White chocolate is a bit of a misnomer. The treat is actually made of cocoa butter, which is the fat from cocoa beans, mixed with ingredients like milk and thickening agents.
4 Though cocoa butter does come from the cocoa plant, white chocolate doesn't have the same antioxidant benefits found in dark chocolate. That's because the antioxidants are actually found in the cocoa itself, which is separated from cocoa butter when chocolate is made.
5 Good white chocolate is not actually white. Because cocoa butter is ivory in colour, white chocolate will have a similar tone as long as it actually contains cocoa butter. Some cheaper options get around this by adding artificial colouring, which would be listed on the label.
