|Abstract:||Cocoa butter (CB) provides unique crystallization characteristics to chocolates and confectionary products; hence, it is an important value-add product. However, other alternative fats that minimally affect the crystallization behaviour of chocolates and confectionary products are now being increasingly used. This study analyzed the crystallization behaviour of CB, cocoa butter substitutes (CBSs), and their blends. Blends were prepared using CBS concentrations: 5, 10, 15, 20 and 37.5%. CB, CBS, and their blends were evaluated by following analysis: solid fat content, isothermal analysis, polarized light microscopic, thermal behaviour, X-ray diffraction and consistency. Crystallization analysis showed an incompatibility between the 2 fats, with a reduction in the crystallinity and increase in liquid content in all the blends. Eutectic crystallization at 20 A degrees C was only observed for the blend containing 20% CBSs. This was considered as a positive result because previous studies have indicated that CBS concentration in CB blends should not be more than 5%.|
