AAK AB makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Barrier Fat™ is a bloom-retarding barrier fat that prolongs the shelf life of your pralines and bars. Barrier Fat™ may be used pure or in a blend with sugar, cocoa and milk powder. Using a thin layer of the pure fat or the blend in a thin layer between a chocolate shell and filling provides a valuable improvement in “time to bloom.” Barrier Fat™ is non-hydrogenated. Barrier Fat™ products can be used in a wide range of applications such as: in pralines and bars with improved shelf life and in products with high amounts of hazel nuts to minimize softening of the shell and to retard the bloom development.
