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 obtian 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.
