German company HERZA Schokolade GmbH & Co. K announces the launch of the new range of high-protein chocolate and compound pieces that can be used by cereals and ice cream producers.
The range consists of protein chocolate in various shapes, with crispies and fruit pieces for different flavour experiences. In each case, there is a choice between white chocolate enriched with milk protein and milk or dark chocolate with extra vegetable protein. The protein content for all chocolate and shapes is between 20% and 25%. The chocolate pieces are also available as low-sugar variants. Small crispies, fruit pieces or fruit powder permit an additional taste experience; they can be worked into the chocolate according to customer wishes, says HERZA.
The shapes of the new protein chocolate pieces depend on the application and particular customer requirements. Cereal manufacturers, for example, may enrich their protein muesli with high-protein chocolate leaves to specifically address athletes and health-conscious consumers who will not want to miss their chocolate muesli. Chunks, on the other hand, can be worked into bakery products or ice cream. Also, they are very easy to melt and to be used as a coating for bars, wafers or other protein-enriched confectionery, the company explains.
HERZA offers a new quark compound coating especially for ice cream varieties such as quark or skyr ice and frozen yoghurt. These chopped pieces also contain between 20% and 25% protein. Integrated lime crispies give the high-protein pieces a fresh taste that also goes well with quark or skyr desserts. In a two-chamber system, these quark compound pieces can also be a delicious addition to high-protein desserts based on milk.
