The only difference is, the lab grown Swiss chocolate has a more fruitier taste than than traditionally produced one.

The method starts with scientists growing cell cultures from cocoa beans. The cultures are then mixed with a nutrient solution and they begin to multiply.

The scientist then harvest, dry and roast the biomass. Cocoa butter, sugar and an emulsifier called lethicin is added.
