Great Value Vs. Which is the best chocolate powder according to Profeco?
Powdered chocolate is made with sugar, cocoa mixture, and optional ingredients.

However, it does not provide consumers with vitamins and minerals, and has 85.3 grams of sugar and 418 kilocalories of energy per 100 grams of product (powder).
On the other hand, the chocolate with Precissimo powder failed to comply with the information presented to the consumer, because “the legend ‘Added with vitamins and iron’ stands out in the main area of the label, therefore it does not comply with NOM-051”. -SCFI/SSA1-2010.
