The importance of bake stable chocolate Story by Veliche Gourmet

Whenever a recipe calls for chocolate to be processed inside a creation before it is placed in the oven, it is important to work with bake stable chocolate. Bake stability is a property of an inclusion to keep its properties during the baking process. So the product should be able to withstand high temperatures (up to 200+°C) for the whole duration of the baking. For example, if you add a ‘normal’ degustation chocolate chunks on top of cookies before baking, it’s very possible that the chocolate will totally melt, leak out of the cookie, and very likely develop a sort of burnt crust which will negatively impact the finished product. A bake stable chocolate chunk, on the other hand, will ‘survive’ the process. Yes, the chocolate will melt, but it will keep the shape, won’t burn, or overcook, and will keep its delicious taste.

As an artisan, it is important that you can consistently offer the highest possible quality. However, chocolate is a delicate ingredient. Maintaining its shape and texture when it is exposed to heat can be a challenge – especially in recipes that involve baking. With that in mind, Veliche Gourmet has developed bake stable chocolate that always retains the same high level of quality. We offer bake stable Belgian chocolate Drops and Chunks and chocolate Batons. Their composition ensures that they keep a nice shape and delicious taste after baking, ensuring an amazing finished product!

To help bakers in the Netherlands select the right chocolate ingredients for their recipes, Veliche Gourmet was present at Bakkersvak trade fair.
