Cacao Butter is an important ingredient in chocolate
Cacao Butter is one of the most stable fats known, containing natural antioxidants which prevent rancidity and allow a long storage life of two to five years. Pure Cacao Butter also has the wonderful property of nourishing skin and helping diminish burn marks. It also helps to make scars less visible over a period of time.
Cacao Butter is an important component of chocolate. The first stage in processing Cacao is to grind the Cacao Beans to form a uniform paste. This paste has a natural fat content of roughly 50%. This fat is then separated from the Cacao Paste to obtain pure Cacao Butter. The expert chocolatier will mix Cacao Paste and then add pure Cacao Butter to create different textures. The end result is an exquisite molded product that remains firm until dissolved in the mouth.
Is Cacao Butter Dairy Free and Vegan?
Fantastic question. Yes, Cacao butter is vegan and dairy-free! While some people presume cocoa butter includes milk, this really isn't the case. Cacao/ Coco butter is the part of the cacoa bean which 100 percent dairy-free and comes from the cacao tree also known as Theobroma cacao.
Maretai Cacao Butter is a gourmet product needed to make top quality chocolate.
Sourced from Peru and Ecuador, our premium cacao is organically cultivated in its native environment. The Cacao fruit is cut open and the pulp is removed to obtain the seeds or cacao beans. The Cacao Beans are fermented during 6-7 days, then washed and sun-dried for 3-4 days.
Once dried, the Beans are pitted to obtain the Cacao Nibs. The Nibs are ground to obtain Cacao Paste (Cacao Liquor), and then pressed to separate the Cacao Butter. The Cacao Paste (Cacao Liquor) is rich in Cacao Butter (about 50%). The pure Cacao Butter that is obtained by pressing the Cacao Paste (Cacao Liquor) is white-yellowish and an important ingredient that gives chocolate its creamy texture.
