Production & Sourcing
Cocoa Butter – Deodorized Kibbles are produced through a process that starts with extracting cocoa beans from ripe cocoa pods. The beans are fermented, dried, and then roasted to develop their characteristic flavor. After roasting, the beans are cracked open to reveal the cocoa nibs. These nibs are then pressed to extract the cocoa butter, leaving behind cocoa solids which can be further processed into cocoa powder.
The extracted cocoa butter is then deodorized, a process that removes impurities and undesirable aromas while preserving its natural properties. The deodorized cocoa butter is then cooled and formed into kibbles, creating a convenient form for use in various applications, particularly in chocolate production.
