History of mousse

The words chocolate and mousse are from French, and many believe that the origin of mousse is from France. The word Mousse means foam. It describes the dessert very well as this is light or creamy. Chocolate came in 1615 in France. It was a century later that the French developed a technique for mousse making. The mousse was first known as Mayonnaise de Chocolat. In 1887, in the USA, an advertisement in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle mentioned classes to make chocolate mousse by Miss Parloa.

The chocolate mousse recipe first appeared in a “Housekeepers Column” in the 1897 edition of the Boston Globe.

French artist Toulouse Lautrec had the idea of mixing chocolate to mousse and this led to the development of the now popular chocolate mousse. Chocolate mousse had its origin in the 1700s and the first recipe was by a French writer Menon in 1750.

Chocolate mousse gained popularity in the US in the 1930s.


What is Nutella? Ingredients in Nutella.


Nutella refers to a brand of hazelnut cocoa spread that is sweet. This was developed by an Italian company named Ferrero in the year 1964. The ingredients for this spread differ from one country to the other.

Nutella production began during World War 2 in Italy. Baker Pietro Ferrero added grounded hazelnuts to a chocolate spread. He did this to make up for the cocoa shortage in the country during the Second World War.


So what is Nutella made of? The ingredients found in Nutella are:


  • Refined cane or beet sugar is used in making Nutella. The kind of sugar used depends on the place where Nutella is manufactured. Sugar is the biggest part of Nutella.
  • Palm oil is a kind of vegetable oil that is derived from the fruits of palm trees. Palm oil gives the spread a creamy texture and the ability to spread evenly.
  • Nutella comprises 100 percent hazelnut paste. A jar of Nutella has 50 of these nuts in them.
  • The cocoa beans used for making Nutella come from the Western part of Africa. Then these cocoa beans are processed and turned into fine powder. It is after this that they get mixed with several other ingredients for the rich chocolate taste.
  • Skimmed milk powder is made by removing water from non-fat milk. Powdered milk remains fresh for a longer time than regular milk. It does not need refrigeration.
  • The soy lecithin acts as an emulsifier. The soy lecithin keeps the ingredients intact, helps to maintain the texture, and also maintains the smoothness of the spread. Soy lecithin can be made from soybeans.
  • Vanillin is a flavor substance that is present in vanilla bean extract. A synthetic version of Vanillin is found in Nutella.
