Chocolate couverture is a chocolate that is processed from cocoa beans and contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter (nearly 32% to 39) than convention eating and baking chocolate. When combined with proper tempering, the additional cocoa butter in the couverture, gives the chocolate a creamy mellow flavor, more sheen, and a firm snap sound when broken. The specialty of chocolate couverture is attributed to favorable characteristics such as crystallization of cocoa butter.

The processing of chocolate couverture involves a careful selection of cocoa butter crystals that are inherently in the higher stable crystals form and preserving those in chocolates. This preservation of stable crystals is what provides the couverture a smooth and perfect texture.

In order to be perfectly labeled with ‘couverture,’ the chocolate products are necessary to contain no less than 35% of the total dark cocoa solids, 2.5% of dry non-fat cocoa solids, and 31% cocoa butter.

This high content of dark cocoa solids and cocoa butter grants chocolate couverture its unique taste profile that expresses the intensity of the cocoa flavor in the purest form. Hence, surging demand for dark chocolate, milk chocolates, and other chocolate products is anticipated to bolster the sales of chocolate couverture in the market.

Which are the Factors Driving the Growth in Chocolate Couverture Market?

Chocolate couverture is gaining immense popularity across sectors such as food and beverage processing, ice cream & frozen desserts, confectionery, and bakery among others, owing to its high content of cocoa butter, intense chocolaty flavor, and smooth & creamy texture.
