This cocoa butter is truly raw. The butter is from fermented beans that have never exceeded 115 F at any stage in the process and have not been roasted.
And as is very important to me, they also have a clean bill of microbiological health. i.e. no detectable levels of a host of organisms including but not limited to salmonella and e. coli.
And as I hope you would expect from anything I offer, it It has a nice subtle chocolate aroma and no sour or off notes. It makes a fine base for white and milk chocolate. I find that it is somewhere between the Natural and Deodorized I carry in regards to flavor and aroma.
The addition of cocoa butter will affect the mouth feel, melting point and other textural components of your finished chocolate. Use anywhere from 0-20% cocoa butter. This is supplied in pieces for ease of use (not even as shown).
The 50 lb/ 23 kg option is a full block of cocoa butter and takes an extra week to arrange shipping. Hopefully you won’t mind for the discounted price.
