Abstract

This standard specifies a procedure for the detection and quantification of cocoa butter equivalents (CBEs) and milk fat (MF) in milk chocolate by triacylglycerol (TAG) profiling using high-resolution capillary gas liquid chromatography (HR-GLC), and subsequent data evaluation by simple and partial least squares regression analysis. CBE admixtures can be detected down to a level of 0.5 g CBE/100 g milk chocolate and quantified well around levels of 5 % CBE addition to milk chocolate with a prediction error of 0.7 g CBE/100 g milk chocolate.
