Chocolate can be described as a suspension consisting of non-fat particles (sugar, cocoa solids and milk powder particles) dispersed in cocoa butter and a portion of milk fat as a continuous phase. Its unique pleasant taste is produced by a complex interaction of odour-active volatile compounds, which are supplementary to the fine bitterness of cocoa and the sweetness of sugar. The characteristically pleasant mouth-feel is produced by the melting behaviour of cocoa butter, its flavour release and the rheological properties of the melting mass.
