Botanical Name: Theobroma Cacao
Quality ingredient for organic chocolate and natural skin cosmetic
Cacao Butter is one of the most stable fats known, containing natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity and give it a storage life of two to five years. Pure Cacao Butter is also attributed for helping skin in diminishing burn marks and making scars less visible over a short time.
Cacao Butter is an important component of chocolate. Although the Cacao Paste used in manufacturing chocolate already contains Cacao Butter, an additional amount is required to produce a moulded product that remains firm until dissolved in the mouth.
Our Raw Organic Cacao Butter is Pure Criollo Cacao butter from Peru.
Why do we source Criollo?
In Spanish, Criollo means 'of local origin'. This is a very high quality cocoa bean and is very aromatic and lacks bitterness. The Criollo is used in luxury chocolate but rarely alone since it is very scarce and expensive. Becoming less and less available. Found in Venezuela, Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Colombia, Samoan Islands, Sri Lanka and Madagascar. Criollo represents less than 3% of the world's cocoa production.
Ceremonial Grade Cacao?
Our Criollo is pure unadulterated cacao, sourced from the Mesoamerican region and is deemed Ceremonial grade or Heritage Cacao.
