What is Raw Cacao Butter? Cacao butter is literally the pure oil of the cacao bean, which
comes directly from the cacao tree, and is what white chocolate is made
Our Cacao Butter is created
through a specially created low temperature method that ensures that
vital enzymes and nutrients remain intact; maintaining nature’s original
healing intent of this “Food of the Gods”.
process begins by grinding Cacao Nibs into a "paste" so that the
oil begins to separate from the protein and fiber. The temperature is
never allowed to exceed (or even reach) 120 degrees Fahrenheit and is
usually 104 degrees Fahrenheit (most other cocoa butters are exposed to
temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit!). A high-accuracy
thermometer is used throughout processing. The paste is then poured into
a press which squeezes out the oil. Slowly, the pure, liquid delicious
cacao butter drips into a separate container where it is allowed to cool
and is then packaged lovingly for shipment. It takes approximately
2-1/2 to 3 pounds of raw cacao nibs/beans to create one pound of raw
Cacao Butter. No chemicals, no hexane, no solvents.
