Cacao butter is made by pressing cocoa liquor (ground cacao nibs) at high pressure, until the cacao butter is separated from the cocoa mass.
This smooth, fragrant plant based oil is used by chocolate makers to hone the mouth feel and intensity of the chocolate they make. We use various amounts in most of our varieties of chocolate bar.
In particular, some added cacao butter helps give our Plant Based Mylk Chocolate bars a smooth truffly texture to help them melt in your mouth in the most seductive way.
A little is also added to our range of chocolate bars sweetened with yacon syrup, so that, whilst these bars are all dark chocolate, they have a slightly lower intensity than some other 70% chocolate bars.
