Tempering chocolate is a pivotal step in making sure your chocolate is smooth, glossy and evenly coloured for coating.
It also prevents the dull, gray-ish colour and waxy texture that results from the cocoa fat separating out; and controls the crystals so that only consistent, small crystals are produced, resulting in a higher quality chocolate. Untempered chocolate can feel rough and have a chewy texture. Furthermore, it is also more susceptible to heat and humidity, melting more easily and spoiling faster.
Whilst tempering can indeed be done by hand, for example over the stove or in a microwave, when you are operating a larger business with a higher throughput, tempering your chocolate manually just won’t cut it. That’s where we come in.
We have a range of automated chocolate tempering machines here at Vanrooy that can assist in your chocolate production and save you a lot of valuable time. Read on to learn about some of our favourites.
