Analytical methods/tools to compare aroma profiles of Milk Chocolates

Request Number 181103 | Author Mondelēz International


Identification of an analytical methodology/tool to quickly, reliably and robustly compare aroma profiles of milk chocolates.


Oftentimes, the question arises whether the aroma profile of two chocolates are the same, or which aroma profile of a set of given chocolates is closest to the target aroma profile. Sensory evaluations require quite large amounts of resources and are time intensive. Therefore, we are looking for an analytical method/tool that can quickly, reliably and robustly group milk chocolates based on their aroma profiles.

Key Success Criteria
  • An analytical method that can group / classify milk chocolates based on their aroma profile (i.e. determine whether the aroma profile is the same, slightly different, or very different)
  • Ability to analyse and evaluate 60 samples per day
  • Robust and repeatable results
What We Aren't Interested In
  • Methods/tools that show significant drift over time and therefore require regular, extensive re-calibration
  • Methods/tools that are not already available and need to be developed
Preferred Collaboration types

We are only keen to explore commercially available technologies that meet the above criteria.
