Chocolate milk is a well-known and
popular product around the world. Except for a few products where a
visible sedimentation is desired, chocolate milk is expected to be
a homogeneous product without visible sedimentation and
Most of the cocoa powder is
insoluble in milk and water meaning that if no precautions are
taken, the cocoa particles settle at the bottom and the text 'shake
before use' will have to be written clearly on the packaging.
This labelling has a negative impact on the consumer. Further, for
long shelf life products creaming occurs over time - a process
which can also be delayed by taking appropriate action.
