Chocolate isn't the only product we get from the cacao pod, this majestic plant also gives us a variety of cocoa products that can be used in or alongside your chocolate creations.
Chocolate is essentially made of cocoa mass (except in white chocolate), cocoa butter, sugar, and dairy products or vegan alternatives (except in dark chocolate). Pure cocoa mass and cocoa butter can then be used to alter the characteristics of a basic chocolate or a filling. For instance, if a chocolate with the taste you're looking for is just a little too viscous for a particular enrobing line, it is possible to increase its fluidity by adding a little cocoa butter. Our cocoa butter is available in refined and deodorised, or 100% natural and undeodorised, meaning the original flavour of the cocoa butter remains.
Cocoa mass would generally be used to enhance the bitterness of a chocolate, although this would also have the added effect of decreasing its fluidity. And our range of premium quality, ground chocolate powders are perfect for a variety of applications, including hot and cold drinks, cakes and brownies, decoration and dusting, and many more!
Cacao nibs are roasted and chopped cocoa beans, their strong flavour and health benefits make them a delicious addition to your desserts and even savoury dishes!
Please note that cocoa powders will change colour depending on the application for which the powder is used.
