Sustainably sourced from ancient groves in remote areas of Peru, our Organic Cacao Butter is a delicious and satisfying addition to desserts, chocolate recipes and special treats. This luxurious ingredient will give your recipes a wonderful creamy texture and delicious chocolate aroma. Cacao butter has also traditionally been used as a body moisturiser due to its easy absorption into the skin. It is a great source of oleic acid, the same healthy fat found in olive oil.
Add to baking and desserts or use to make your own homemade chocolate. When gently heated, cacao butter can be applied topically as a natural body moisturiser.

Our organic cacao products are sourced from sustainable, organic co-op farms located in Peru. All farms involved in the co-op are part of a Development and Sustainability Program which involves giving incentives to farmers to produce organic and sustainable cacao products. The farmers undergo practical training and their environmental impact and sustainable growing practices are continually reviewed to ensure all standards are being met. Q: Would cacao butter be of benefit for someone who has high cholesterol? A: There is no cholesterol in cacao butter so for instance in baking it would be a better option than butter. Cholesterol is only found in animal products such as fish, meat, chicken, dairy etc.
