"The use of Pro-Choc™ software has radically changed my method of manufacturing ganaches. It allowed me to balance my recipes without changing the texture and to bring a freshness period for some up to more than a month of extra longevity. This software is the indispensable tool of the Chocolatier, just like the thermometer for the confectioner. You brought us with this great tool, the strength of industrial research laboratories. Thank you for those years of work that you had to do to achieve this great gem."

VALENCE OF AGEN
"I have been using PRO-CHOC software since 2004. This easy-to-use software is probably the best work tool I have in my lab. In the United States and Canada, we ship our chocolate bonbons across the country. Since I rebalanced all our ganaches with PRO-CHOC, we have gained stability, shelf life, texture and significantly improved tastes. Today, it is unthinkable to neglect technology and understanding of ingredients, as well as their influence on shelf life. The ability of the software to “decompose the ganache in percentage and calculate fat, sweetness index and shelf life in relation to the water activity in seconds, is just great! "
-Julian ROSE, Master Chocolatier, Pastry chef and Consultant
Director of Research and Development Moonstruck Chocolate, USA
"I've been using PRO-CHOC since February 99. It allowed me to review all my recipes and create new ones. I don’t have any shelf life issues or problems anymore. Mr. RICHARD's internships taught me to know the products better. The return investment of the software is very fast."
-Jean CHATELLIER, Baker, Pastry Chef, Chocolatier
"PRO-CHOC is an important technological advance for Chocolatiers. It is an indispensable tool and in addition, with a remarkable ease of use. I was able to rebalance my recipes and jump from 4 weeks to 6 weeks of shelf life for my products with a very little recipe change, even just a few grams difference to move in the right direction. Speed and simplicity, for the French 35 hour/week, it's not negligible!
