FCC Guidelines compliance for shipping cocoa beans

Absortech desiccants are FCC guidelines compliance for shipping cocoa beans. The Federation of Cocoa Commerce published these updated guidelines in 2013. They recommend the use of desiccant bags as a method of moisture control. Specifically, it recommends the usage of desiccants that contain at least 65% calcium chloride. Consequently, the FCC no longer recommends silica gel for the shipment of cocoa.

Absortech’s products such as AbsorGel® comply with this requirement and surpass it. Thanks to its composition, AbsorGel® guarantees a high absorption capacity with a minimal cost. AbsorGel® main ingredient is calcium chloride that has proven to effectively remove moisture from the air. It bounds the water into a gel and avoids leakage during the shipment of cocoa beans.
