DUBLIN, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets announces the addition of AOCS Press' book "Cocoa Butter and Related Compounds" to its catalogue.
This book covers the progress of 10 years of studies on cocoa butter. Descriptions of several aspects, including physical characteristics such as rheology, hardness, melt profiles, etc., studied by new and advanced techniques are included.
Similarly, the polymorphism of cocoa butter is reconsidered in light of studies done by synchrotron DSC, FTIR, and SAXS techniques. These data are complemented by new understandings on the cause of the crystallization and transitions of the polymorphs.
Other aspects such as the effect of minor components, emulsifiers, and other fats are discussed in great detail in this book.
Key Topics Covered:
Chocolate and Cocoa Butter Structure and Composition
Theobroma cacaoAn Introduction to the Plant, Its Composition, Uses, and Health Benefits
Phase Behavior of Saturated TriacylglyceridesInfluence of Symmetry and Chain Length Mismatch
