Now in easy to use 1g cocoa bean shapes! Our organic raw cacao butter is ethically sourced and comes from the same plantations and Nacional Arriba cocoa beans as our organic raw cacao powder. This aromatic cacao butter is the natural fat from the cocoa bean extracted from the cocoa mass at low temperatures. It is free from dairy, gluten and sugar, has a beautiful floral scent that is the perfect base for raw chocolate making, wonderful for moisturising skin and lip and even perfect for cooking and frying with.
Cacao butter is a heart healthy fat and a very stable compound so will not go rancid and has a long shelf life (around 2 years). A powerful source of antioxidant flavanols, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, Magnesium, Iron and Vitamin E, cacao butter is known to reduce cholesterol and inflammation (particularly good for eczema, psoriasis and other skin inflammation sufferers).
Have you tried frying and cooking with Cacao Butter? Cacao Butter is high in Oelic Acid, is a heart healthy fat and just as good for frying with as coconut oil is, only it doesn’t affect the flavour and simply adds a divine richness to your food. The best thing is that you only need a small amount to fry with! Only 3g of cacao butter is enough to fry eggs, added to stews. chillies and curries and 6g cacao butter is all you need to fry meat and fish. Enjoy!
