Cacao Butter, Peruvian- 1 lb.
(Item no: 1733)
Quantity on Hand: Available
Our raw Cacao Butter (Vegan food) contains no chemicals, no hexane, no solvents and no added sugars, and is created through a proprietary cold-pressed method. This process begins by cold-pressing raw Cacao Nibs into a "cake" in such a way that the oil begins to separate from the protein and fiber. The temperature is never allowed to exceed (or even reach) 120 degrees Fahrenheit (conventional cocoa butters are exposed to temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit!). Slowly, the pure, liquid cacao butter begins to sift off into a stainless steel valve that takes the cacao butter into a separate container where it is allowed to solidify in an attractive shape and packaged for shipment! By using this carefully monitored cold-press process our cacao butter's natural enzymes, delicious raw smoothness, and aroma are preserved. Cold-press processing of raw, organic cacao is not exclusive to any one supplier and has long been used and improved by providers of raw food products. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sun light. Raw Cacao Butter has a stable shelf-life of over a year.
Cacao butter has a rich chocolate aroma and can be added to many recipes where chocolate is desired. Since it has not been heat processed, our cacao butter easily blends into any recipe. Cacao Butter can be combined with our raw agave nectar, raw coconut oil or other raw chocolate products to produce delicious smoothies or raw deserts.
Cacao butter has been used for centuries as a skin moisturizer. Cacao butter melts at body temperature and its beneficial concentrated natural fats are readily absorbed by the skin. These qualities have made cacao butter a favorite ingredient in topical lotions and creams. It has been long valued by women to help reduce stretch marks during pregnancy and frequently recommended for the treatment of skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
