Hi,I'm about to make a 3 dimentional design for a custom vacum forming mould.
in order to have the software design the exact size for a specific chocolate bar weight,
I need to know the specific gravity/specific weight of chocolate. the thing is that different chocolates might have different measures of specific gravity (dark,milk,white,praline,nuts etc.)
any advice? and maybe someone knows the specific gravity of standard dark chocolate?
thanks a lot,
Chocolate density ranges between about 1.2 grams/cc to 1.35 grams/cc.
Your chocolate can be tested for density at our facility if you like, no obligation. Send us a sample and we would be happy to do that for you.

No problem, all you have to do is size the mold for the lightest/lowest density product, if you have a depositor you can under fill sightly or if you flood and scrape you products will be slightly different weights.
You might also give consideration to how different the results will actually be if you fill the molds to the same weight even with the different densities of chocolate.
The thickness of the bar will change, of course, since different densities mean different volumes for the same weight. But if this variation is 'seen' as a change at the 'back' of the bar, there may be no perceived quality difference.
thanks a lot for replying! It's very much appreciated!
