Interaction of cocoa butter equivalent component fats in ternary blends

Author(s): MD. ALI, A R*; EMBONG, M S*; OH Flingoh, C H+

Selected commercial samples of palm mid-fraction (PMF), Borneo tallow (IP) and sal stearin (SLs) were blended in ternary systems. The compatibility of fats in the blends was monitored by measuring the changes in melting points and solid fat content. The results showed that the addition of the third component, IP or SLs, to binary blends of PMF:SLs or PMF:IP respectively, did not eliminate the eutectic behaviours which already existed.
