Production of chocolate products with high quality indicators is one of the most important tasks of the confectionery industry. Products of processing of cocoa beans are the main ingredients of chocolate products and a comprehensive assessment of their quality is an urgent task. In this work, we studied the qualitative indicators of various samples of cocoa liquor and cocoa butter. The analysis shows that the cocoa liquor sample №5 contained 50,1% cocoa butter compared to other samples, the mass fraction of fat which - (52,5?55,2) %. The lower the mass fraction of fat in cocoa liquor, the lower the yield of cocoa butter when it is pressed. The degree of grinding of the studied samples of cocoa liquor was (92,5?94,1) %, which will ensure the production of fine chocolate semi-finished products produced using these samples. It is also necessary to take into account the pH values of cocoa liquor. The pH level 5 will lead to a longer conching time of chocolate semi-finished products to give them optimal organoleptic properties...
