Organic Cacao Butter (chocolate in the making)
Cacao used to be reserved for people of importance or those with spiritual duties, hence its alias ‘food of the gods’. Cacao butter is loved for its rich texture and nutritional power. The beauty of this organic cacao butter is its ability to produce rich and creamy chocolate which will make you re-think chocolate all together.
Organic Cacao Butter is the fat extracted from the cacao bean, unlike cacao nibs and powder, the butter is mild tasting but has a rich chocolatey aroma. If you want to try making your own chocolate then cacao butter is your starting point to the best texture and flavour.
Most regular chocolate choices have milk, sugar and other additives thrown in to preserve it, so if you like the idea of making your own natural versions then cacao butter and cacao powder are your building blocks. Cacao powder is ground down from the bean and is a source of selenium which contributes to normal function of the thyroid and immune system. They are high in a number of important nutrients including magnesium which is necessary for the reduction of tiredness and fatigue – a great reason to make chocolate!
Cacao butter has a melting point of around 36 °C so it is solid at room temperature but melts in the mouth – this makes chocolate made with cacao butter superior to those recipes made with coconut oil.
Looking for the best cacao powder for your chocolate? When you roast cacao beans they take on a distinctive roasted flavour which makes for great tasting chocolates. The gentle roasting process breaks down the phytates in the cacao beans, this makes it preferable to some people. If you are in the roasted cacao camp then try our organic natural cacao powder. All our cacao products are organic, GMO free and bursting with flavour.
