Hi All,
I am trying to flavour dark and white chocolate with a raspberry flavour. What do I use as I have tried a raspberry oil flavour, but I can’t taste anything. Also orange flavour does not come through. Your help would be appreciated. Regards John

I’ve actually been having issues with Lorann raspberry oil. It seems no matter how much I use, it will seize my chocolate up pretty badly. Besides crushing freeze dried raspberries is there a better flavored oil option?

Thanks, I will give that a try

I do this very successfully. I use real freeze dried raspberries which I pulverise in a blender. Then I also add raspberry oil. I am in Australia and I asked the manufacturer of the oil as to how much to add. As @Cookieco says, we’d need to know weight and what oil you’re using. But the manufacturer could help you a lot. Or just keep adding until you get it right.

There will probably be a “tipping point” where it suddenly tastes bad – bitter. So just back up a bit when you hit that point.

I do orange too – with real freeze dried orange dust and again, orange oil. You ca see my products at

Although I do use real fruit, it makes it expensive and you could just use oil. I just like to state that I have real fruit but I do use the oil too to intensify the flavour and also as natural fruits tend to vary batch to batch.

@Cookieco – Just to be clear, you’re trying to make something like flavored chocolate bars?

Without knowing what/whose oil you’re using and how much you’re adding by weight it’s hard to know where to start giving advice.
