Due to enormous demand, we proudly announce the availability of the world's first and only certified organic 100% Raw Cacao Butter (also known as Raw Cocoa Butter).
What is Raw Cacao Butter? Sunfood Cacao Butter is the only raw, certified organic, chemical-free cocoa butter. Cacao butter is literally the pure oil of the cacao bean, which comes directly from the cacao tree, and is what white chocolate is made of.
Our's comes directly from a farm that we work closely with regarding quality and high standards. Sunfood Cacao Butter is created through a specially created low temperature method that ensures that vital enzymes and nutrients remain intact; maintaining nature’s original healing intent of this “Food of the Gods”.
This first-rate process begins by grinding Sunfood Cacao Nibs into a "paste" so that the oil begins to separate from the protein and fiber. The temperature is never allowed to exceed (or even reach) 120 degrees Fahrenheit and is usually 104 degrees Fahrenheit (most other cocoa butters are exposed to temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit!). A high-accuracy thermometer is used throughout processing. The paste is then poured into a press which squeezes out the oil. Slowly, the pure, liquid delicious cacao butter drips into a separate container where it is allowed to cool and is then packaged lovingly for shipment. It takes approximately 2-1/2 to 3 pounds of raw cacao nibs/beans to create one pound of raw Cacao Butter.
Directly from the cacao farms, to the packaging facility, to the workers and to you, we have done everything possible to ensure that super-high quality and integrity comes through in our finished food products. No chemicals, no hexane, no solvents.
Just like the rest of our cacao products, our Cacao Butter is packed with antioxidants, including polyphenols, catechins and epicatechins that help to fight off free radicals, giving you a healthy, complete superfood. In addition, flavonols help the body produce Nitric Oxide, a compound essential for proper heart function.
Raw Cacao is one of nature's most fantastic superfoods due to its high mineral content and wealth of antioxidants. Since many of the special properties of cacao are destroyed or lost by cooking, refining, and processing, planet Earth's favorite food is still unknown to most of us. Now we get to reconnect with the power of real, raw chocolate! Raw Cacao offers fantastic hope for chocoholics everywhere. You can turn cravings for cooked, processed, chocolate into the super-nutrition of the highest order.
Sunfood's Raw Cacao Butter is made from the clean and microbe-free, cacao nibs which offer a powerful boost of phenylethylamine (PEA) and anandamide, both of which enhance positive feelings. Raw cacao is also a natural source of trace minerals, such as manganese, zinc and copper, which help to maintain healthy blood while theobromine, iron, chromium, magnesium and omega-6 fatty acids play an important role in heart health, brain function, growth and development.
Antioxidants: Cacao contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world. No food exhibits greater antioxidant capacity than cacao! These antioxidants include polyphenols, catechins, and epicatechins. By weight, Cacao has more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, acai, pomegranates, and goji berries COMBINED.
Sunfood Cacao Butter is edible and possesses an extraordinary rich, delicate chocolate aroma. Add a piece of this ecstatic butter to your favorite smoothie, dessert, ice cream or chocolate creation. Because it has not been damaged by heat, our cacao butter melts easily and blends nicely into any type of recipe. This makes it super fun and easy to use.
Using cacao butter topically on the skin is a treat like no other – it leaves your skin glowing, vibrant, revitalized, soft and supple. It provides instant olfactory and tactile euphoria. We recommend using on your skin after or during a shower or bath.Cacao butter may be used as a skin moisturizer. It may be used as (or in conjunction with) a massage oil.
