This is a premium quality, fair traded, GMO free, organic, raw cocoa butter from Peru. Ideal for anyone who wants to make their own chocolate. It is suitable to eat straight from the pack as a snack, or stir into coffee or other hot drinks to add flavour and calories. It makes lovely white chocolate for GAPS patients or anyone on a sugar restricted diet, especially when combined with creamed coconut. This raw cacao butter is made by pressing raw, organic cacao nib at low temperature to preserve the full vitality and goodness of the raw cacao. It melts at approximately 35C.

One of the most important qualities of cocoa butter is its high stability as compared to other fats. This unique aspect gives it a very impressive shelf life of 2-5 years, which is even further improved by the antioxidants found in cocoa butter, thereby reducing the chances of the oil becoming rancid. You can find cocoa butter in many forms, but it is still primarily consumed in chocolate. Its stability at room temperature but relatively low melting point also make it an ideal base oil for suppositories and other medicinal creams. Cacao butter is a nontoxic solid that melts at body temperature, making it an excellent massage oil and skin cream.

Ingredients: Raw organic cacao butter
