The objective of this diploma thesis was to compare the conventional gas chromatographic (GC) method with a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for the determination of the triglycerides in the various fats. Both, the GC and the HPLC method, allowed to distinguish easily between pure cocoa butter and blending consisting of 10-20%. There were no considerable differences using the GC or the HPLC method concerning the final results at least using the approach by integrating only the three main peaks in the chromatograms.
