How To Flavour Chocolate

Using Natural Flavours To Create Great Tasting Chocolate

Everyone has their favourite chocolate flavour whether it’s strawberry, mint, hazelnut or a hint of chilli. Our natural flavours allow you to experiment with flavouring chocolate or ganache, whether you are making a chocolate sauce, topping or your own artisan chocolate collection.

Foodie Flavours provide intense taste sensations for home and professional chocolatiers – Browse our range of natural flavourings for chocolates.

We have a wide range and variety of flavours available to buy online now, in sizes from 15ml to 1 litre. Ideal for home chocolate making, developing new products or low volume production.

Using flavours in chocolate.

Types of flavouring for chocolate
Generally flavourings are either ‘water soluble’ or ‘fat compatible’. While a water soluble flavour may work in a water based ganache the best results are obtained using fat compatible flavours. For flavouring chocolate itself a fat compatible or oil based flavouring should be used.

How to add the flavour
Our natural food flavouring should ideally be added to the melted chocolate and mixed in well. Our 15ml bottles come with a handy built-in dropper so you can easily add flavour by the drop.

How much flavouring to use
Foodie Flavours are highly concentrated so only a few drops are generally required. The amount you use will differ between flavours and vary according to your type of chocolate. As a guide, use between 1ml and 3ml of flavour per kg of chocolate and adjust to taste. Some flavours may have a maximum limit which will be indicated on the label.

Flavour features for commercial chocolate production.

For commercial users Foodie Flavours help you display a ‘clean label’ on your chocolate products. Our natural flavourings meet EU regulations to be listed on your ingredients list as “Natural Flavouring”.

Some weaker flavourings could spoil the consistency of your chocolate as you have to add more liquid. However, due to their high concentration, Foodie Flavours help preserve the quality of  your chocolate creations.
