NIST Reference Material 8403 is intended for use in harmonizing methods for the determination of cocoa flavanols monomers and their oligomers up to a degree of polymerization (DP) of 7 units. RM 8403 is a free-flowing powder containing cocoa flavanols sealed in aluminized mylar sachets. A unit of RM 8403 consists of five sachets each containing approximately 3 g of the cocoa extract powder. This publication documents the production, measurement results, and statistical analysis in realizing this product.
