Couverture chocolate is a type of high-quality chocolate made with a higher percentage of cocoa solids, cocoa butter, and sugar. It is commonly used by bakers, pastry chefs, and chocolatiers for its smooth texture, good melting characteristics, and intense flavour. The term “couverture” originates from the French word for “covering”, referring to its use as a coating for various confectionery products.
Explore Our Extensive Collection of Couverture Chocolate
Vantage House can offer you Couverture Chocolate in plain, milk, white, pink, caramel and coloured & flavoured in Callebout callet (or button) or, with some ranges, block form.
Couverture chocolate contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter than baking or eating chocolate and this, combined with proper tempering, gives the chocolate more shine, a firmer snap when broken, and a creamy taste in the mouth. Dark couverture chocolate can range from a deep rich 85% cocoa mass Columbian Extra Dark with floral and fruity notes through to a mild flavoured callet from Callebaut at 46.4% cocoa mass. Vantage House can offer a range to suit every taste and every application.
Milk couverture chocolate can range from 40.7% Callebaut Power, which has a higher than usual cocoa mass content compared to most milk chocolates giving it richer taste (and it also contains less sugar), through to milder, creamier milk chocolate with around 32% cocoa mass as in the case of the Schokinag chocolate couverture.
White couverture chocolate does not contain any chocolate mass, it is usually made from milk powder, cocoa butter (cocoa solid), sugar, and vanilla. The cocoa solid content can range from 36.5% in the case of Luker’s Nevado to 22.3% with Callebaut’s White Velvet.
Vantage House also supplies a range of ‘Single Origin’ couverture chocolate which means that it is made from one variety of cacao harvested in one region. The beans of the chocolate plant will take on characteristics of the area that it is grown in, similar to grapes that are made into wine. Single origin couverture chocolate is available in Dark and Milk.
To complete the range of couverture chocolate Vantage House can also supply pink couverture chocolate (Ruby), and coloured and flavoured couverture chocolates such as lemon, orange, caramel, honey, strawberry and cappuccino.
