Organic chocolate pieces
HERZA Schokolade, a manufacturer of small chocolate pieces for further processing in the food industry, has introduced a new range of organic chocolate pieces produced without sucrose.
The company has, since 2008, offered organic and Fair Trade chocolate in a host of different shapes and sizes, most of which is intended for use in muesli, pastry goods and bakery mixes.
The new sucrose-free chocolate pieces achieve a sweet taste by using coconut sugar, lucuma or rice syrup – natural sweeteners that all have a comparatively low glycaemic index.
To meet the continuing demand for high-protein products, HERZA also offers chocolate pieces enriched with valuable organic protein. Such organic protein chocolate contains up to 30% more protein than standard milk chocolate. When the organic protein is used, the chocolate retains the delicate taste of milk chocolate and at the same time acquires an additional functional benefit. The high-protein organic chocolate pieces are also available with a reduced sugar content.
As with the conventional chocolate pieces, HERZA offers the organic qualities in a great diversity of shapes. In the organic sector, there is also the popular three-colour mixture of white, dark and milk chocolate for decorating muffins, cakes and gateaux.
