Couverture Chocolate is a very high-quality Chocolate that contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter (32–39%) than baking or eating chocolate. This additional cocoa butter, combined with proper tempering, gives the chocolate more sheen, a firmer "snap" when broken, and a creamy mellow flavour. In order to be properly labeled as "Couverture", the product must contain not less than 35% total dry cocoa solids, including not less than 31% cocoa butter and not less than 2.5% of dry non-fat cocoa solids; Couverture is used by professionals for dipping, coating, molding and garnishing. The industry standard and best Premium Fountain Ready Belgian Couverture Chocolate runs perfectly in Chocolate Fondue Fountains without the addition of oil or cocoa butter. A wonderful blend of the finest ingredients creates the incredible aroma and silky smooth flavour of Sephra Gourmet Fondue Chocolate. Sephra's Chocolate creates the perfect cascading effect effect in Chocolate Fountains and is wonderful to use in making your favourite Chocolate pastry or dessert. Enjoy!
Compound Chocolate is a product made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fat, and sweeteners. It is used as a lower-cost alternative to 'true' Belgian Couverture Chocolate, as it uses less-expensive hard vegetable fats such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil in place of the more expensive cocoa butter. It may also be known as 'compound coating' or 'chocolatey coating' when used as a coating for candy. Manufactured in Italy, Sephra Fountain Ready Chocolate Flavoured Compound is formulated to run perfectly in your Chocolate Fountain without the need to add any further oil or cocoa butter. It can also be used for baking, cooking and moulds. Supplied in 2x5Kg food grade bags in Chocolate button form making it easy to melt and use. The only difference between this blend and our Belgian Couverture Chocolate range is that the fat used in production is vegetable based instead of cocoa bean based. This means that CFW can supply the product at a reduced price, yet the quality and taste of the Compound Chocolate is still fantastic and a great cost effective solution.Show more
