White Cocoa Butter Color - Better Tasting Alternatives


Posted in: Tasting Notes

I was about to order a bottle for myself from Glarus. Shipping was $24 :/  I understand the Heat Safe Guarantee is mandatory for transfer sheets but not so much for the colored cocoa butters.

Please let us know about the differences! If you talk to Kurt again soon, please ask him about a cheaper shipping option for the cocoa butter colors.

Thanks!

Josh

White Cocoa Butter Color - Better Tasting Alternatives


Posted in: Tasting Notes

The product I have the most "titanium dioxide flavor issue" with is a chocolate bar molded in a silicone mold and then sprayed with white cocoa butter color and finished in maroon with a foam stencil brush. TAMU Bar I use the smallest amount of white on the bar to get a solid coat and use a stencil over the lettering. It's the fact that the first thing you taste when you eat the bar is the white pigment sprayed on the outside of the bar that accentuates pigment flavor. It needs to be pure white to get approval by the CLC. We offer a plain chocolate version, but it doesn't sell nearly as well as the color version. 

We have a chocolate with a white transfer sheet, but its in such a minimal amount of white, the off flavor isn't an issue. TAMU Chocolates with Transfer Sheets

@Brad, is there a supplier that you would recommend with a flavorless Titanium Dioxide pigment? When I mix my own colors its usually a 20/1 ratio cocoa butter (deodorized) to pigment. I haven't mixed white myself yet. Would this ratio work? 

Thanks!

White Cocoa Butter Color - Better Tasting Alternatives


Posted in: Tasting Notes


Howdy,

I am looking for a white cocoa butter color without that Titanium Dioxide kick to the palate. I currently use the Chef Rubber Alabaster. It seems we've been getting more and more complaints about the off-putting flavor. Any suggestions?  We have CLC licencing for our local university's logos, which happen to be Maroon and White, so using the white is a necessary evil. Thank you!
