Health Facts

Organic Raw Cacao Butter Nutrition Facts

History

Originally, cacao comes from Central America as it was consumed by the Aztecs in the form of hot chocolate.

Our cacao butter comes from Bali and is produced in small batches of 5kg at a time. The beans are ground by hand before being moved to a dryer (38 ° C) and then pressed to extract the oil.

Culinary Uses

Melt cacao butter in a double boiler and mix it with raw cacao powder, vanilla and sugar to taste, until it becomes a creamy cacao. Cool in pan et voila, you'll have a bar of raw cacao! Add your choice of nut pieces or dried fruits for something a little different! Cacao butter is also used in the production of certain cosmetics such as sun oil or lip balm.

Did You Know?

The saturated fat in raw cacao does not elevate cholesterol, unlike commercial chocolates, meat or dairy foods, since cacao butter contains plant sterols such as sitosterol, which inhibit cholesterol absorption.

skin care Written By: Elizabeth
In the last few months I have been experimenting with natural skin care products. My favourite has been mixing this cacoa butter with coconut oil on a very low heat and adding alcohol-free vanilla extract. I blitz the whole thing in the vitamix for a few seconds and then pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. I let it cool in the fridge and once hardened, break it up into little chunks of about an inch or so. Perfect for lip balm, facial mosturizer, or body cream. It soothed my son's dry skin patches and there was no panic when my four year old daughter used it on her face and then ate the rest!
A Gorgeous and Decadent Ingredient Written By: Stacey
This cacao butter has a wonderful flavour and smooth texture. It's not something I use extremely frequently, rather saving it for very special concoctions. There's this no-bake chocolate ganache cake we make that uses beautiful ingredients like dates, cacao, cacao butter, coconut milk powder pureed to a silken perfection and then chilled on a pressed cacao, crushed almond, and coconut sugar crust that we make as a fancy-shmancy party dessert; this cacao butter is absolutely perfect in this cake. Or our ultra riche, ultra creamy chocolate coconut milk ice-cream ... I've never been disappointed by this cacao butter and highly recommend it.
