Peter's Eastchester Caps Semisweet Chocolatey Flavored Confectionary Coating, 25Lb
Peter's Eastchester has a rich Dark chocolate flavor, creamy texture and is excellent for coating, moulding, and enrobing. Eastchester is a confectionery (does not contain cocoa butter) product so tempering is not required when melting. If a thinner coating is desired, paramount crystals may be added. If adding flavors or colors, use a concentrated flavor or oil-based color. Peter's confectionery coatings have a creamy mouth feel with no waxiness.
A compound is a blend of sugar, vegetable oil and other products, which may or may not include cocoa powder and/or chocolate liquor. Since they do not contain cocoa butter, compounds do not require tempering. Compounds are not defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Standards of Identity; therefore any number of compound coatings can be developed with a variety of flavors, colors and performance based on the fat system used. Peter’s Chocolate offers Westchester® (milk chocolate flavored), Eastchester® (semisweet chocolate flavored) and White Icecap® coatings.
