What Is Couverture?
Chocolate couverture is chocolate with an additional amount of cocoa butter. Thanks to this addition, a couverture can melt smoothly and evenly, keeping its full flavor and remaining easy to temper. By definition, couverture has to have a minimum of 31% cocoa butter, and 35% cocoa solids.
Is White Chocolate Real Chocolate?
White chocolate’s main ingredient is cocoa butter so obviously, it is chocolate indeed - but in order to be officially considered a white chocolate, it has to have at least 20% cocoa butter amongst other ingredients like milk solids and milk fat.
What Is Cocoa Butter?
Cocoa butter is the natural fat obtained from the cocoa beans.
Why Santa Barbara Chocolate Couverture?
We produce our white chocolate couverture from pure cocoa butter, with no addition of palm oil or artificial ingredients.
What’s more, for your convenience, our couverture is shaped like a tab. It is better than chocolate chips or chunks when you need it for coating because its larger surface area enables a better, more stable melt.
It is generally easy to grab and eat or use for baking, as it has the perfect shape and size - it is like a small chocolate bar, but better. To enhance the flavor to an even higher degree, our white chocolate couverture tabs have a soft, rounded top and flat angular base edges.
When our couverture melts, it evenly releases the authentic flavor nuances of pure cocoa butter, cane sugar, natural vanilla, and whole milk.
