Abstract


The present works is interested in the study of the fatty acid composition of cocoa butter extracted from dried beans from a solar device (experimental tray) and a microwave oven (MO) at three power levels (2400W, 2800W and 3200W). The results showed that the cocoa butter is essentially composed of three fatty acids close to 90%. These are palmitic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid respectively for the extracts from the tray (24.41 ± 0.01%, 31.89 ± 0.02 and 32.22 ± 0.02%), the MO 2400W (23.64 ± 0.01%, 32.21 ± 0.02 and 32.31% ± 0.02%), the MO 2800W (24.87 ± 0.00%, 33.96 ± 0.01% and 33.18 ± 0.03%) and MO 3200W (22.38 ± 0.10, 33.00 ± 0.06% and 32.42 ± 0.05%). The variance analysis did not identify any significant difference in the effect of the two devices on the composition of major methyl esters constituent fatty acids (P≥0.05).
