Abstract

Background: Conching is the processing step in which chocolate is subjected to long-term heat treatment, mechanical forces and addition of fat and emulsifiers. There is an important relationship between the chocolate flavour and the type of conching process. However, it is a costly processing step due to long duration of high temperature application.
