Description – Cocoa butter is a common ingredient in commercial and hand-crafted products. Our organic cocoa is very similar in feel and appearance to unrefined but comes from an organic source. To extract the butter, the beans are lightly roasted and then mechanically pressed. The oil is then filtered to leave a rich yellow butter with a natural chocolately aroma. It is slightly softer than our refined cocoa butter with a deeper colour. Unrefined cocoa retains more of the micronutrients than refined. Remember, this is a natural product and there may be variations in colour and aroma from batch to batch.
