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.
