Industries has launched a new line of gluten-free chocolate clusters for
healthy indulgence that will be available in multiple international markets.

A cluster is a
snack based on a blend of ingredients that does not have a structured or
consistent shape. The gluten-free clusters line offers several combinations of
gluten-free cereals and dried fruits or nuts covered in either chocolate or yogurt.
The clusters can be custom packed in different sizes and shapes as
private-label for marketers, restaurant chains and retailers, and for on-the-go
packages or a multi-pack. All are designed to address a healthy, gluten-free
lifestyle.

A significant industry
challenge is in how to blend cereals such as cornflakes and rice puffs with
nuts and/or dry fruits, and bind them with 70 per cent chocolate in such a way
that the inclusions are not dominated by the chocolate and maintain overall
great taste and texture. To achieve this, Carmit conducted a number of trials
to hit the perfect balance in percentage of each ingredient and viscosity of
the chocolate. The final product is a remarkably rich, bite-sized cluster of
crispy cereals and chewy dried fruits, covered in milk or dark chocolate.
