Technologies & methodologies to mitigate fat bloom in chocolate

Request Number 172217 | Author Mondelēz International


We are looking for ways to extend shelf life by preventing fat bloom in fat-based products (including fat-based fillings and nut inclusions)


Fat bloom occurrence can compromise both visual and textural quality and there are multiple situations and product formats which can lead to fat bloom. It can be identified by a white or greyish film which causes a general dulling of the surface. One of the main consequences of fat bloom includes a high level of consumer complaints and Mondelez are interested in solutions that can prevent and/or inhibit fat bloom.
