The ready biodegradability of low fat cocoa powder was assessed by
measurement of carbon dioxide evolution under standard conditions. The
procedure followed was that of OECD guideline 301B, Ready
biodegradability (Adapted 1981, revised, 1992) At regular intervals
incubation traps were detached and their contents titrated with
hydrochloric acid to determine carbon dioxide evolved from the
respective test vessels. Mean CO2 evolution from Low Fat Cocoa Powder
was 81% of the theoretical CO2 yield at 6 days. The level of
biodegradation therefore satisfied the requirements for ready
biodegradability and Low Fat Cocoa Powder can, therefore, be classified
as readily biodegradable.
