Can you still eat chocolate when it turns white?

Chocolate with fat bloom may have a soft or crumbly texture, and it will often have tan or grayish-white blotches on its surface. Neither sugar bloom nor fat bloom are harmful to people. However, either condition will probably render the chocolate unpleasant to eat.

People also ask, why is my melted chocolate turning white?

Sugar bloom is caused by moisture, most often in the form of condensation or humidity. When chocolate comes in contact with moisture, and then subsequently dries out, it causes the sugar in the chocolate to crystalize, leaving discoloration and splotches on the surface. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this.

What causes discoloration of chocolate?

Sugar bloom is normally caused by surface moisture. The moisture causes the sugar in the chocolate to dissolve. Once the moisture evaporates, sugar crystals remain on the surface. If this process is repeated, the surface can become sticky and even more discolored.
