Grinding

Grinding

After the Cocoa butter (fat) is being pressed from the Cocoa liquor, Cocoa cake remains. Loos Cacao B.V. is able to grind cakes with a fat percentage of 10-12% into Cocoa powder. It is also possible to grind Cocoa cakes with a fat percentage of 0 % (light). The sieve residue of the Cocoa powders is depending on the type of Cocoa cakes and the pre-grinding conditions during the production of the Cocoa cakes. For the grinding of the Cocoa cakes we have three grinding lines to our disposal. Two hammer mills and one classifier mill. With this last mill it is possible to grind on a specific fineness.

The grinding of the cocoa powders is being done with the greatest possible care. Every grinding line is specially build for the grinding of Cocoa and being provided with several magnet and sieves, so that a constant quality anf food safety for your product is always guaranteed.
