Types of Lentils


Lentils are produced in three steps. The centre is made from either milk chocolate, dark chocolate or a compound. It is then subjected to the coating process, and finally the colour is applied. 


A) Carletti Standard Chocolate Lentil 

The standard chocolate lentil is available in 3 sizes: mini, standard and large. They can be used in many different ways, from consumption to decoration and in baking. 

B) Carletti Standard Chocolate Lentil – with extra strong Coating 

This type of chocolate lentil is finished off with a thin layer of glazing agent, which makes it very suitable for baking. The glazing agent provides a consistent high quality gloss.


C) Carletti Freeze & Thaw stable Chocolate Lentil - NEW 

With the unique features of Carletti's Freeze & Thaw stable chocolate lentil you avoid problems when it is put in watery or frozen environments. It will keep its shape and colour and not dissolve. This type of lentil is particularly suitable as inclusions in ice cream and frozen cakes. 


D) Carletti Standard crushed Chocolate Lentil 

Carletti offers a range of crushed chocolate lentils, also known as “broken cuties”. They can be used for decoration purposes, both on bakery products and on ice cream. 

E) Carletti Compound Lentil 

The compound lentil is a cost-effective alternative to the standard chocolate lentil. It is also characterized by its higher melting point, which makes it ideal for decoration purposes.

Carletti chocolate lentils are very versatile and can be used for many different applications. They are available in the dietary class, e.g. kosher chocolate. Carletti can also deliver lentils that meet customers' specific requirements for trade standards such as RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and UTZ Certified.


The chocolate lentils come in different packages and volumes from cartons of 10 kg to Big Bags of 600 kg.
