Ganache Recipe< /p>Flo-coat is a food coloring agent that allows you to use any of AmeriColor's Soft Gel Paste to color white chocolate and compound coatings. The usage ratio is 5 parts of Flo-Coat to 1 part of Soft Gel Paste. To color compound coating: melt 1 lb. compound coating, add 1 ½ tablespoons Flo-Coat then 1 teaspoon Soft Gel Paste onto the Flo-Coat, mix thoroughly. The Flo-Coat will smoothly and evenly disperse the Soft Gel Paste into the coating, resulting in a smooth pouring consistency. As you proceed with your work and find that your coating is beginning to set up, add more Flo-Coat to keep it liquefied. Flo-Coat will not harm your coating regardless of the quantity used to maintain your desired consistency. Flo-Coat will enable you to realize the maximum yield from your batch of coating resulting in a savings by eliminating lost batches. Flo-Coat provides a firm texture, beautiful shine, and greatly improves mold release. Flo-Coat is a wonderful candy making aid that allows you to use any of the Soft Gel Paste colors to achieve your most demanding compound coating coloring needs, while making your task a great deal easier.
