Stevia Leaf Extract Chocolate Hazelnut Coating and Filling

Distinctively rich and sweetened from a natural leaf extract

  • Key benefits

  • Offer consumers their favourite flavour combination – chocolate and hazelnut – without the guilt
  • Extend your range and provide consumers with more choice
  • Meet consumers’ demand for naturally sourced sweeteners

Adding a natural twist to an old favourite

Many consumers love hazelnut coatings or fillings, but those who prefer naturally sourced ingredients can feel excluded. Our hazelnut coating and filling come sweetened with extract of the stevia plant (Steviol glycosides), enabling more of us to enjoy that moreish combination of luxurious dark chocolate and hazelnuts.

Expanding possibilities

Technological advances mean that many fillings and coatings can now be sweetened with Truvia®, an award-winning, naturally sourced sweetener derived from the stevia leaf. This coating and filling can be used in pralines and many other types of confectionery, bringing a new world of choice to health-minded shoppers.

Creating more choice for consumers

These days many consumers care more about the origins of the products they buy. Cargill’s naturally sweetened coatings and fillings can increase product options that can be tailored to the changing needs of the modern consumer.
