100% hazelnuts in a smooth, golden paste.
For its pure nut pasten Callebaut® selects the finest hazelnuts from orchards in Spain, Italy and Turkey. Picked when they’re fully sunripe, the hazelnuts are stored under the best conditions – away from light, temperature changes or air for max. 12 months. They’re shelled max. 12 hours before they’re roasted to protect their essential oils and preserve their delicate, fruity flavours. The hazelnuts are then mildly roasted and finely ground into a pure, smooth, golden paste.
Pure hazelnut paste brings out an intense hazelnut flavour with lovely toasted flavours and delicate fruitiness. It’s a great base to mix with chocolate to create praline fillings with a very pure and intense hazelnut taste. And of course, they make for a great base to flavour ice creams, patisserie crèmes and dessert crèmes with a pure, unsweetened hazelnut taste.
