Properties of phulwara butter, a tree kernel fat of possible use as a confectionery fat or cocoa butter substitute, were studied. Data are given for fatty acid composition, triglyceride composition, cooling curves, dilatometry characteristics, and performance of a phulwara fat fraction in a milk chocolate system. Phulwara butter behaved as a plastic fat without any supercooling properties; this is due to presence of trisaturated triacylglycerols. An olein fraction produced after separation of 10% stearin fraction showed considerably improved supercooling properties, but had lower solid fat index at ambient temp. (making it unsuitable for use in chocolate). A middle stearin fraction obtained by 2-stage fractionation had acceptable solid fat index at ambient temp. A cocoa butter blend containing 15% phulwara stearin fraction had a melting curve similar to that of cocoa butter. However, the fraction showed limited compatibility with cocoa butter. It depressed the overall melting range of cocoa butter even at a concn. of 15%; it lowered the solid fat content at 32.5
