This is a superb edible deodorised cocoa butter produced for creating fine chocolate. This butter has a mild cocoa scent. If you are looking for an organic cocoa butter which is especially suited to fine single origin chocolate where the smell or taste of the cocoa butter is not wanted (as it may to interfere with the flavour and aroma of the single origin cocoa mass) this is the product you want.
Natural cocoa butter is obtained from whole cocoa beans which are fermented and roasted for flavour and then pressed to separate the butter from the cocoa solids. This is then deodorised using a steam process.
If you are looking for a natural non-deodorised cocoa butter especially suited for making white chocolate and for any recipes where the aroma of chocolate is required please see our other cocoa butter products.
Note that this cocoa butter is from roasted cocoa beans. Cocoa and cacao mean the same thing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocoa_bean. A cocoa bean is a cacao bean whether roasted or not. Raw food marketers unfortunately promote the idea that cocoa is roasted and processed while cacao is raw when there is actually no difference. To avoid confusion we use cacao and cocoa when referring to our cocoa products, whether they are roasted or not (raw). We also sell Big Tree Farms cocoa/cacao which is the only verified “raw” cacao produced under temperatures below 46 degrees.
Although primarily used for making chocolate, as it is a high quality edible butter, it can also be used as an emollient for skin without the cocoa smell. We supply this butter in crushed small broken chunks for easy weighing and melting.
