Mycryo is a 100% natural ingredient: pure cocoa butter in powder form. It presents a true revolution for tempering. Adding just about 2% Mycryo to melted chocolate seeds the necessary stable crystals to create perfectly pre-crystallised chocolate conveniently. Chocolate needs to be 34 degrees and the Mycryo should be seived in. On top, the addition of the cocoa butter will give your chocolate more gloss and a harder crack.
Mycryo is also a wonderful vegetable fat for frying and grilling. It resists frying temperatures better than butter or oils and doesn’t burn. In addition, Mycryo brings out the natural flavours of even the most delicate ingredients, like scallops or foie gras. Just roll vegetables, meats, fish or poultry in Mycryo and fry or grill the ingredients in a hot pan or on a hot grill. You can even mix Mycyro with herbs or spices.
