Enrobing chocolate using PGPR (MUFTi Kit 903)

The chocolate enrobing experiment allows students to understand the economics of producing a consistent product. Further extension work enables students to understand potential problems when flavouring or colouring a chocolate product.

  • Using an emulsifier to control the viscosity of liquid chocolate and hence the thickness of coating on the final product.
  • Calculating the cost of producing a food product with and without the addition of PGPR emulsifier.
  • Demonstrating the problems of using water-based colours and flavours with a chocolate product.
