The Compound Chocolate Segment is Growing at a Faster Pace

The vegetable fats commonly used in India are often hard or semi-solid fats at room temperature, such as coconut oil and palm kernel oil. Compound chocolate is attractively priced, which makes it an ideal choice for hobbyists and food manufacturers in various segments, such as bakery, confectionery, ice creams, and frozen desserts. It is used as a low-cost alternative to couverture chocolate in the food industry. Moreover, as compared to real chocolates, compound chocolate does not require tempering, which is one of the major reasons why consumers prefer compound chocolate over real chocolate.
