Ever thought your could get a chocolate made from meat?

Well, an AgResearch scientist and Auckland boutique chocolate maker Devonport Chocolates have developed just such a chocolate, one that’s 50 per cent beef.

The meat lover’s chocolate uses dairy beef that is processed and encased in chocolate.

The result is a sweet with a consistency similar to a turkish delight. Any meat flavour or texture has been removed.

Unless told, people would have no idea they just ate something containing beef, AgResearch senior scientist Mustafa Farouk, the creator, said.

Farouk wanted to see if the nutritional qualities of meat could be added to common foods such as chocolate.

Farouk is awaiting the results of a nutritional analysis, but he estimates that each square would contain about 25 per cent protein, as well as iron and zinc.

The product could have huge potential benefits for sportspeople or the elderly wanting an easily consumed high-protein product.

He is now turning his attention to lamb and venison, to see if they’ll work, too.
