Data fusion of fluorescence and UV spectroscopies improves the detection of cocoa butter adulteration

Anna Dankowska


The aim of this research is to develop a quick and cheap method of discriminating between cocoa butter and cocoa butter equivalents. The obtained results are satisfactory for classification of genuine cocoa butter and cocoa butter equivalents and for detection of cocoa butter adulterations with cheaper cocoa butter equivalents. The method is an important technical support of public health against profit-driven practices.
