Flakes & Barks

Flakes & Barks

Endless varieties for today’s experiential consumers

Denali’s low-melt flakes and barks are offered in a range of sizes, from about ¼” up to 1”, with our random break process. Flakes are produced in large sheets that are then randomly broken into smaller pieces. These pieces are then screened for appropriate sizing. Our flakes and barks are low-melt, which means the flake is formulated to stay hard in ice cream but melt in your mouth. We also can formulate for ambient applications.

Barks are flakes with particulates added. Examples of this include peppermint bark, which is a white choco flake with peppermint pieces added, or our choco peanut bark, which is a dark choco flake with chopped peanuts added.

Additionally, we have the capability to blend mix-ins, such as a cookie dough and flake blend, or a blend of two flakes.

Denali also produces liquid chip, which is a liquid compound coating, but when mixed into frozen dessert, it shatters and disperses consistently throughout.
