Chocolate and confectionery is an incredibly creative sector, constantly evolving to create new flavours and formats, whether it is a chocolate bar seeking a shiny glossy finish and snap, a luscious filled praline, or a creamy coating for a cake or biscuit.

The melt profile, bloom resistance, coating flexibility and heat stability all depend on the fat composition and crystal structure.  Cocoa butter equivalents, cocoa butter improvers, cocoa butter substitutes and filling fats are key tools that AAK can provide.

With our cocoa butter alternatives and filling fats you can improve taste and sensory experience, extend shelf life and address the demands of environmentally minded consumers. 

AAK is committed to creating a positive future through our Kolo Nafaso Shea Programme.  Join our movement for positive change.
