Soluble cocoa is a beverage made from cocoa powder, which is diluted with water. In a beverage may be added toppings or dry cream. Foam is achieved by means of mixers if we are talking about a vending machine, or using a hand whisk for preparation of the beverage at home.
One of the important indicators of the quality of cocoa powder is the degree of grinding. The powder should be well ground, homogeneous, when rubbed between the fingers should not feel the grains.
Cocoa – parsec comes in two types:
1) natural cocoa powder:
It is almost insoluble in water, forming a suspension of solid particles in water, which precipitates to the bottom of from 5 to 15 minutes. That is why in order to prepare the drink is made from natural cocoa powder should be boiled in water.
Characteristics: mild aroma, light brown color, but more intense flavour
Therefore, for the production of cocoa for vending, he’s not good, because for vending machine required ingredient, is able without boiling to give a stable suspension, rich color, taste and aroma.
2) alkalized cocoa powder or prepared cocoa:
Depending on the degree of processing is low, medium and highly alkalized.
Features: characteristic aroma, dark brown to reddish-brown color, pleasant taste and mainly has less acidity, lighter dispersed in water, in comparison with natural cocoa powder
For example, a company Sutro. known manufacturer of ingredients for vending, used three methods.
Agglomeration – the accession of the particles. Under high pressure of moist air around the particles of sugar, stick the particles of powdered milk, cocoa and other essential nutrients.
The spray drying. Prepared liquid mixture of the components and under high pressure is sprayed and dried in the drying tower at a high temperature. This method can only be applied when using natural milk.
The usual components are mixed by stirring in a mixer.
By the way in the production of cocoa drinks often rarely used and soy lecithin, but because it contributes to the development of extraneous flavors, are special types of lecithin and its substitutes. For maximum effect, when you add the lecithin should be covered every bit of cocoa powder.
For this purpose, liquid lecithin is injected into the grinder of cocoa press cake. Or if cocoa powder has already passed the stage of grinding, the lecithin in the form of an aqueous emulsion injected into the rotary drum mixer. Cocoa powder in the mixer is in a state of turbulent air suspension, that is, in conditions that ensure maximum coverage lecithin particles of cocoa powder. Subsequently processed cocoa powder, dried
