Here is what is known and why we love Raw Cocoa Butter:
Cocoa butter is a type of vegetable fat that comes from cocoa beans. Manufacturers extract creamy cocoa butter from the beans by fermenting, drying, roasting, and then pressing them. They turn the remaining portion into cocoa powder. Researchers have found that cocoa has several healthful properties, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Cocoa Butter is full of fatty acids like oleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid, cocoa butter is full of antioxidants that fight free radicals. These antioxidants also ensure a long shelf life.
Despite being considered a saturated fat, cocoa butter is, in fact, a healthy fat – mostly saturated –similar to coconut oil. The amount of saturated fat it contains (as opposed to unsaturated fat) is between 57 percent to 64 percent of the total fat content. Among the different types of fatty acids are:
- stearic acid (about 24 percent to 37 percent of total fat content)
- palmitic acid (24 percent to 30 percent)
- myristic acid (0 percent to 4 percent)
- arachidic acid (around 1 percent)
- lauric acid (only about 0 percent to 1 percent)
Minimally processed, and not heated to high temperatures during manufacturing, cocoa butter typically retains more of the healthy fats and other superfood compounds found naturally in cocoa beans.
