HERZA Schokolade now offers its Chocnology specialities in micro-sizes. These miniature pieces are bake-stable, abrasion-resistant and capable of deep-freezing, making them appropriate for bakery products and mixes and ready-made frozen doughs. And, because they are widely dispersed, they give the end product a “chocolaty” appearance even though less material is being used. They come in white, milk or dark chocolate and as a three-color mix of the variants, and are available in coated or non-coated.

Carat Filocrem is a bake-stable compound chocolate filling that offers a superior flavor and mouthfeel comparable to real chocolate. Ideal for cookies, pralines, puff pastries and pull-a-parts.
