Cocoa butter, also called Theobroma oil, is a pale-yellow, edible vegetable fat extracted from the cocoa bean. It contains a high proportion of saturated fats, derived from stearic and palmitic acids, and has a cocoa flavour and scent.
Natural cocoa butter retains the characteristic smell of cocoa beans and adds a distinct chocolate taste and aroma to confectionery or other products. It has nutritious properties useful in both the food and cosmetic industries.
