Cacao Butter is the edible fat extracted from the raw cacao bean. These cacao products cater to the consumer who appreciates the cacao’s natural nutritional benefits. These products are not toasted, which means they are technically “raw” because they are processed at low temperatures (below 45ºC (110ºF)) which preserves the beans natural health properties.
Cacao is considered as one of the best anti oxidants due to its high poly-phenol content and high mineral content. These products have no additives, and are free of allergens, GMO, BSE/TSE and any irradiation process.
Each order is tested regardless of whether the batch has already been tested and we look for moisture content to be below 18% as well as pesticides and heavy metals, all of which must comply with the legislation of the country of destination for it to pass our QA controls.
