Chocolate and Cocoa Analyzer

The Unity Cocoa and Chocolate Analyzer is a complete solution ready for a cocoa processing plant or chocolate manufacturer. 

The Unity Cocoa and Chocolate Analyzer is fast, with sample results available in 30 seconds.  This speed, combined with guaranteed accuracy, allows for complete control of the plant, maximizing profits and providing fast payback.  In less than a minute, our NIR systems provide simultaneous results for fat, moisture, protein, sugar and other parameters.  Near Infrared (NIR) analysis is a proven technique designed to provide fast, accurate, and reliable results for the cocoa industry.


Unity Cocoa and Chocolate Analyzer packages are complete solutions ready for the analysis of cocao beans, cocoa powder and chocolate products found in the cocoa processing and chocolate industry. 

The Unity Scientific Cocoa and Chocolate Processing Analyzer is based on the SpectraStar XT, the next generation high performance NIR analyzer based on the TRUE ALIGNMENT® Spectroscopy technology. The SpectraStar XT incorporates a rotating top window (RTW) system for the ultimate in sampling flexibility, allowing the customer to make measurements of all cocoa and in-process chocolate samples. The SpectraStar XT’s quick analysis time provides real-time feedback that allows the process to be controlled, optimizing the process and providing rapid payback.


The Unity Chocolate Analyzer has ready to use calibrations for every step of the chocolate manufacturing process, from incoming cocoa beans and other raw ingredients through the chocolate making process and including the final chocolate product. The Unity Chocolate Analyzer contains calibrations for milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa liquor, cocoa powder, cake, cocoa beans, nibs, and cocoa butter. Constituents predicted include fat, moisture, sugar, fatty acids and other constituents. Calibrations for ingredients such as milk powder are also available. All calibrations include 1 year of free calibration support.


Fast, accurate analysis is critical for both cocoa processors and chocolate manufacturers to optimize their process, minimize re-work, and ensure quality. Optimizing the process will save the plant time and money and provide very rapid payback.
