Hi Amye

Oreo biscuits are grouped into the short dough category and are typically produced using a rotary moulding process similar to products like custard creams and digestive biscuits.

The black colour of the biscuit is achieved by using a high level of Cocoa Powder which is processed by Alkalising the beans before roasting this results in a dark brown to black coloured cocoa powder. These powders can be sourced from most of the major suppliers of cocoa and have a pH of about 9.

A typical starting recipe for an Oreo biscuit would be as follows:

Soft Flour 233

Cocoa Powder( black to dark brown) 17

Powdered Sugar 70

Shortening 44

Ammonia 2

Sodium Bicarbonate 0.5

Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate 0.7

Invert Sugar 5

Salt 2

Lecithin 0.5

Water 35

(Note water may need adjusting dependant on flour water absorption)
