Abstract

Cocoa butter deodorizer distillate from one of the local cocoa grinders was selected and analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively by gas chromatography and gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS). Crude cocoa butter deodorizer distillate contains about 80% of fatty acids. To eliminate compounds other than fatty acids, sample of the crude cocoa butter deodorizer distillate was treated with sodium hydroxide, dissolved in distilled water, and filtered. Fatty acids were precipitated by adding hydrochloric acid and vacuum dried. Analysis by gas chromatography showed that palmitic acid was the major compounds followed by oleic acid, stearic acid and linoleic acid.
