Description

Description

Cocoa butter is a pale yellow and edible vegetable fat that is very popular both in making confections and for making a variety of different body care products. It is produced from whole cocoa beans that have been fermented, roasted and then separated from their hulls. Once the cocoa beans are separated from their hulls, 54-58% of the residue is cocoa butter. The technique for collecting cocoa butter is called the Broma process, which involves hanging bags of roasted cocoa beans in a warm room and allowing the cocoa butter to drip off the beans. Cocoa butter starts to soften and melt at 93-101° F (34-38° C). It contains a very high percentage of saturated fats derived from stearic and palmitic acids.   It has a smooth, velvety texture with a slight aroma of chocolate (non-deodorized cocoa butter has a much stronger aroma of chocolate).
