Milk chocolate is made from cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, sugar, milk and flavourings.
Dark chocolate is made from cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, sugar, and flavourings.
Some standards for chocolate do not classify white chocolate as chocolate because it does not include cocoa liquor, only cocoa butter. For example the Codex Alimentarius international standards for chocolate do not include white chocolate, instead they have a separate standard where they are called cocoa butter confectionery. In this standard a minimum of 20% cocoa butter is specified to be included in the cocoa butter confectionery.
