      Guys I¹m deeply moved by your preoccupation about this problem of mine.
      Thanks, sincerely.
      I think it was a mix of every reply to my original message, Mike M¹s,
      Harry¹s, Walter¹s and all the others than got me on the right track to beat
      this one.
      Looks like 3 ml per liter (0.3 % V/V) of Soy Lecithin is a winner Walter.
      The sodium caseinate is proving very hard to find and it seems it won¹t be
      necessary to get to that complexity. Thorough mixing (homogenizing) is
      definitively the key Mike. And there should be a sequential order to the
      ingredient mixing Harry.
      I¹ll post the results tomorrow with both recipes (white and dark with milk).
      Thanks again.
