Abstract

This standard specifies a validated procedure for the detection of cocoa butter equivalents (CBE) in cocoa butter (CB) and plain chocolate by high-resolution capillary gas chromatography (HR-GC) of triglycerides and subsequent data evaluation by regression analysis. The method has been validated for the detection of 2% CBE admixture to cocoa butter corresponding to about 0.4% in chocolate (assumed fat content of chocolate 20%).
