Cocoa Butter (Food Grade)

Cocoa Butter (Food Grade)

Baraka Cocoa Butter is made from sustainably grown and community harvested cocoa beans. Originating from small-holder farms, the beans are harvested and prepared using traditional techniques.

As our cocoa butter is crafted in small batches, some natural variation in scent is normal. Occasionally, the cocoa butter may have a stronger roasted chocolate scent.

Please note: Food Grade Cocoa Butter is sold for cosmetic use. The Food Grade designation simply refers to the fact that it is put through a micro-filter to remove micro-solids to the level required for high-end chocolate making.
