Abstract
It is known that increased cocoa butter yields can be achieved with Gas Assisted Mechanical Expression (GAME) of cocoa nibs when compared to conventional expression of cocoa nibs [Venter, M.J., Willems, P., Kuipers, N.J.M. & de Haan, A.B. (2006). Gas Assisted Mechanical Expression of cocoa butter from cocoa nibs and edible oils from oilseeds. Journal of Supercritical Fluids, 37 (3), 350]. In a hydraulic press the GAME operation consists of a CO2 dissolution stage, a pressing stage and a depressurisation stage. In this work the influence of the process parameters involved with the pressing stage on the final cocoa butter yield is investigated. All GAME experiment...
