Discover the Next Generation Chocolate - Purity from Nature!

Cacao Barry, the world's leading gourmet chocolate brand, unveils the next generation of chocolate couvertures - Purity from Nature!
The Purity from Nature chocolate couvertures - Ocoa, Inaya and Alunga are stemmed from a rising demand for premium chocolate by artisans, chocolatiers and pastry chefs.
Ocoa, a dark and distinctive chocolate couverture (70% cocoa) with good cocoa taste and a hint of acidity. Suitable for enrobing and moulding.

Inaya, a dark chocolate couverture (65% cocoa) with intense cocoa taste, has a good balance between bitterness and acidic notes. Suitable for mousse, ganache and moelleux.

Alunga, a milk chocolate couverture (41% cocoa) that is slightly sweet with a dominant taste of cocoa and milk. Suitable for mousse and ganache.
"Pure, Intense and Traceable chocolate!"
Fermentation is a crucial step in awakening and extracting the best flavours from the beans. Cacao Barry took years of painstaking research that resulted in the Q-Fermentation method, in which specific micro-organisms naturally present in the plantation brings out the most outstanding purity and intensity from beans.

For the launch of Purity from Nature chocolate couvertures in Asia-Pacific, Cacao Barry Singapore collaborated with 4 chefs on "Creative Day" to create eight extraordinary recipes which incorporate local ingredients with Purity from Nature.

"Pure Intensity from Nature"
Hear from the chefs about incorporating local ingredients with Purity from Nature!
During the Asia-Pacific launch, we tasted some delicacies created with the chocolate couvertures.
Personally, I like the delicacy that used Alunga (41% cocoa) as a coating, with a topping of caviar.
It is an ideal combination of the new generation chocolate couvertures and ingredients, which appeal to our taste buds.
Eager to taste the chocolates?
Chef Janice Wong will be using the new generation of chocolates (Ocoa, Inaya and Alunga) in her 2am:dessertbar.
