* It makes it easier to un-mould chocolate, pralines… (with maximum shrinkage).
* It gives your chocolate a hard, shiny surface with a uniform colour (no lines, no grey colour). In short: chocolate that looks tasty and snaps when you break it.

"Callebaut remains above all synonymous with superior chocolate couverture for the professional: a top quality ingredient that inspires and appeals to the imagination. No other chocolate offers such guarantees in terms of flavour (including constancy), choice, reliability and workability.
