Differentiation of Confectionery Products Based on Mineral Composition

The aim of this investigation was to introduce multivariate techniques for the estimation of confectionery product quality in view of their mineral composition. The concentrations of 14 elements (Ca,

Mineral essential elements for nutrition in different chocolate products

The essential mineral nutritional elements in cocoa beans, in chocolates at different cocoa percentage (60,70,80 and 90%) and in milk chocolate are evaluated and are confirmed as an excellent source of magnesium and iron.

Assessment of trace metal contents in chocolate samples by Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

Trace metals (Pb, Cd, Ni, Fe, Cu, Zn and Mn) were assessed using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS) in 32 commonly consumed cocoa products (chocolates) prepared by different national and

Cocoa Agronomy, Quality, Nutritional, and Health Aspects

The history of cocoa and chocolate including the birth and the expansion of the chocolate industry was described, and flavor, sensory, microbiological, and toxicological aspects of cocoa consumption were presented.

Crayfish Carapace Micro-powder (CCM): A Novel and Efficient Adsorbent for Heavy Metal Ion Removal from Wastewater

Crayfish carapace, a plentiful waste in China, was applied to remove divalent heavy metal ions—copper (Cu), cadmium (Cd), zinc (Zn), and lead (Pb)—from wastewater. The adsorption capacities of



Factors affecting instant properties of powdered cocoa beverages

Lead Contamination in Cocoa and Cocoa Products: Isotopic Evidence of Global Contamination

The much higher lead concentrations and larger variability in lead isotopic composition of finished cocoa products indicate that most contamination occurs during shipping and/or processing of the cocoa beans and the manufacture of cocoa and chocolate products.

This review summarizes the results of 15 controlled studies supplementing defined Cr(III) compounds to subjects with impaired glucose tolerance with the conclusion that chromium deficiency is a factor in the much discussed "Syndrome X" of insulin resistance.

Monitoring and assessment of dietary exposure to chemical contaminants.

While the assessments generally confirm the effectiveness of government efforts to prevent or reduce food contamination in industrialized countries, better exposure estimates for infants and children and other vulnerable groups should be calculated and basic food contamination monitoring and assessment programmes should be established.
