Theobromine in cocoa powder and drinking chocolate was determined by the methods of (i) Holmes [Analyst (1950) 75, 457], (ii) Gerritsma & Koers [Analyst (1953) 78, 201], (iii) Moir & Hinks [Analyst (1935) 60, 439] and (iv) spectrophotometry. Values obtained for (i), (ii) and (iii) were in close agreement; as (i) and (iii) are time consuming, (ii) is recommended for routine analysis.
