Cocoa Butter Deodorised
Cocoa Butter Deodorised / Cacao Butter
Theobroma cacao (seed butter)
A mature Cocoa Tree can produce only up to 30 pods per year, by the time you extract the Cocoa Beans (seeds) and dried them, each tree will only produce about 1 kilo of Cocoa Beans per annum. Cocoa Beans are harvested and seperated from the husks. The Beans are then roasted before the shells are removed via a winnowing machine leaving just the Cocoa Nibs. The nibs go through an Alkanisation process which develops the odour and flavour. The Cocoa Nibs are then milled to yield Cocoa Liquor which is then pressed to extract the Cocoa Butter, leaving behind a mass known as Cocoa Presscake. The cocoa presscake is broken into small pieces to form kibbled presscake, which is then pulverised to form what we know as Cocoa powder.
