Product Information

The Yuzu Inspiration fruit couverture is a subtle blend of cocoa butter, sugar and yuzu. A fine treasure in the great citrus family,
yuzu is one of Asian gastronomy’s classic ingredients. Even if this small golden yellow fruit has found an upscale home on the menu of the greatest restaurants and in the window of the best pastry shops, it still has an exotically perfumed air about it. Valrhona wanted to celebrate fresh, tangy flavor in all its intensity with its Yuzu Inspiration fruit couverture. 

Inspiration is made from processed fresh fruit of the very finest quality, whose intense color and flavor combine wonderfully with the unique texture of cocoa butter. Despite its very simple composition, Inspiration is a revolutionary product whose design required highly complex technical solutions. Inspiration contains no artificial color or flavor. 

It is thanks to teamwork that we were able to create this innovative range of fruit couvertures. Despite all the product development we’ve already done, Inspiration was a genuinely ground-breaking project with new challenges that have given us a chance to grow with Valrhona!
