Sieves are used on the outlet to the mills to stop the balls damaging machinery during the next stages of chocolate making. The balls wear and are replaced at regular intervals. Magnets in the outlet pipes trap any pieces of metal that come out of the mill. COCOA BUTTER AND COCOA POWDER PRODUCTION Alkalising (Dutching) Most of the cocoa liquor that is used to produce cocoa powder is alkalised, whereas very little liquor that is used to make chocolate is treated in this way. The alkalising process was developed in the Netherlands in the 19th century, which is why it is also known as the Dutching process.
When the pots are opened, these are automatically ejected and fall onto a conveyor belt (9). A lower quality butter is obtained by a continuous expeller process which presses the fat out of whole cocoa beans, which includes the shell. Very often these beans are not of an adequate standard to make chocolate, in that they may not be properly fermented or may have too acidic a flavour. The shell contains some fats that are not cocoa butter. These too are pressed out and get mixed with the cocoa butter.
The storage conditions that should be used can be determined by means of sorption isotherms. 1 1 illustrates the curve for sugar at 20°C. As was noted earlier, the equilibrium relative humidity is the relative humidity at which water is neither taken in nor given out. 02%. At higher humidities, the moisture content increases dramatically. Damp sugar can be microbiologically contaminated. In addition it will stick together and form lumps, even if the humidity is reduced again. In the chocolate industry, sugar is stored in arge silos containing many tonnes.
