The article concerns the research specificity of model systems such as cocoa butter – palm olein, cocoa butter – sucrose and cocoa butter – glucose syrup by the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) method. The researchers run experiments in the temperature range from –100 to –50°C at a heating rate of 10 °C/min. In the cacao butter – palm olein system an eutectic occurs with a palm olein content of 30.0 % indicating the limited solubility of palm olein in cocoa butter. In the cocoa butter – sucrose system, cocoa butter crystallizes as in the α-form (10,0– 30,0; 60.0–90.0 % MK), and as a mixture of α-and β-forms of MK (40.0; 50,0; 70,0 and 80.0 %). Sucrose stabilizes low-temperature polymorphic modifications of cocoa butter. In the cocoa butter – glucose syrup system, temperature of samples melting is 21-22 °C. This composition is promising for use as a filling of confectionery products and glazes production. In this regard, a man can use glucose syrup only in the candy cases production. The role of surfactants used for the formation and stabilization of cocoa butter polymorphs and increasing the thermal stability of the shock-lad without the introduction of palm stearin requires separate consideration.
