deZaan Gourmet recently introduced Opal, a natural gourmet white compound coating. Opal can easily be melted and used for enrobing, molding and depositing. Made with non-hydrogenated fats, it is completely fluid at 104°F and has a shelf-life of 14 months. It is ready to use – no need for tempering – and yields a shiny finish with improved resistance to cracking, allowing for easy cutting. Opal is Kosher, Halal approved and, naturally, gluten-free. It is available in four 5-kg buckets per case.
