There is no need for special equipment and no need to adapt your recipe.
The Classic wallet includes lemon, orange, strawberry and coffee. Each variety is available in a 26lb. bag-in-box – ideal for large bakeries – and 1.25 lbs. pouch with practical spout for artisans, restaurants or in-store bakeries.
As well as being extremely versatile and easy to use, Classics are herbal and one of the cleanest compounds on the market.
