Chocolate chunks are just one of the many Blendtek chocolate offerings. Chocolate and its tasty cousin compound play a vital role in the food industry by contributing to the taste, texture, and visual appeal of a wide range of products. Lets explore in more detail.
Chocolate: Chocolate has a standard of identity so it must include cocoa, sugar, and cocoa butter to call it real chocolate. It comes in various forms including dark, milk, and white chocolate, each with its unique flavour profile and uses in food manufacturing.
Compound: Compound chocolate, sometimes called as confectionery coating, is a cost-effective alternative to 'real' chocolate. It's made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fats, and sweeteners, and is often used in coatings and decorative elements due to its ease of use and lower cost.
Real chocolate, with its rich flavor and creamy texture, is often used in premium products. Compound chocolate, on the other hand, offers a more affordable option for large-scale production.
There are a seemingly endless amount of variations of chocolate and compound, and many factors to consider when selecting the right product.
Chocolate and compound are classic products that offer a multitude of possibilities for product innovation, allowing food manufacturers to cater to the evolving tastes and preferences of consumers. Chocolate can help you elevate the sensory experience in your baked goods, snacks, and beyond. Whether you are searching for a dark chocolate confectionery coating, a high cocoa drop for baked goods or a semisweet chunk for snack bars, we have the solution. There are many criteria to consider to select the best option for your creation; let Blendtek help you navigate to the perfect chocolatey product for your product.
