Hello miss coco,
HB ingredients stock invertase, is listed as invert sugar syrup.
I believe it is also known as trimoline.
There is an interesting chapter in Jean-Pierre Wybauw's book, Fine Chocolates. Pg180 deals with Fruit in liqueur chocolates.
He states invertase may be added to speed up the process but is not necessary.

Good luck Sarah

My understanding was that invertase was an enzyme, and not the same as invert sugar syrup.

You can get invertin from Keylink in Sheffield which I believe does the same thing as invertase.

yeah, i had always thought that invertase and invert sugar were completely different products and i managed to get some from a science teacher at the school where my sister works. its only for experimenting with.

i start a choclate skills course in a couple of weeks so i'm hoping to get plenty of information on local suppliers.

thank you kindly for your reply

ps - does anyone ever use the chatroom here?
