Serving Size: 17.0 chips
Serving Per Container: About 38
A: According to the list of ingredients on the back of the bag, the chocolate "may contain milk."
A: I avoid dairy (cheese, milk, all of it) but I made an exception when the ingredients changed on these chips. Fortunately, they don't seem to impact me, so it must not be much. But that is just my experience. If you really can't eat dairy be careful.
A: These 60% bittersweet chocolate chips contain 6g of sugar per serving, they do not contain sugar alcohol. We are launching 72% Cacao and 100% Cacao (no sugar added) in Fall of 2020.
A: As per Ghirardelli's own website, their chocolate products (chips, etc.) are not tempered. This shouldn't present a problem if you choose to either add the (melted) chocolate to a batter or use the chocolate chips whole in cookies . . . or chop the bars into smaller pieces and add them to cookie or cake batter, etc. (I've been doing all of the above for years using Ghirardelli chips and bars . . . with excellent results.) Tempering chocolate is recommended if you plan to use it as a coating or dip. It couldn't be simpler . . . any number of online sites can explain the process.
