"I glanced through the second paper and found it somewhat unsatisfactory. HPLC is a good technique, but it is not absolute. The authors appear to measure relative amounts of caffeine and theobromine versus external standards run on the same columns…"

How Thermally Stable Is Your Chocolate?

How thermally stable is my chocolate? This question has come up in our product development repeatedly as we worked to formulate our vegan, sugar-free, soy-free all-natural chocolate.  I have searched the web and beyond and all I could find in the open literature were data for the less relevant oils like sunflower, soybean and cottonseed. The cocoa butter information has been very hazy and imho left intentionally vague. So, I ran my own analysis which I hope might be of some interest to this…See More

Hello LUV Ice Cream -

Thank you for your inquiry. I'm sorry, I don't have any idea how much it would cost to ship the Hand Coater.  I would be very hesitant to ship it and it would require quite a crate to set it up for safe shipping.  I really would only feel comfortable in delivering it myself and driving it to where it would need to go basically within BC in Canada or to the US border. By posting on 'The Chocolate Life' I knew that it would mostly be US users but thought if someone had a relative in Canada or BC and were coming up anyway it could be an option if someone were interested. Where are you from?
