Italian fine chocolatier Venchi has opened its flagship store at the Pottinger, Stanley Street, Hong Kong.
Founded in 1878 in Piedmont, Venchi continues its tradition of making chocolates and gelato with the same craftsmanship and recipes for 130 years.
In line with its mission to make "chocolates for everyone", it has created a special line of ‘no added sugar’ chocolates ideal for people who suffer from glycemic disorders or those on a hypocaloric diet.
"This line contains no added sugar as it is sweetened with maltitol, a completely natural substance extracted by processing the maltose contained in maize, which gives the palate a taste very similar to sugar but does not have any of its contraindications," it said.
Venchi’s Chocolight is also low calories and just contain half the amount of calories that sugar has.
