Cocoa butter is unique. The tree and flower from which it grows, the pod and its seed, as well as its postharvest handling are all different from those for any other food ingredient. Cocoa butter is the most critical raw material for chocolate, a foodstuff recognized long ago as having exceptional value. The triglyceride structure of cocoa butter gives cocoa butter unique solidification and liquefying properties, which give the chocolate manufacturer the opportunity to work with chocolate in ways that no other foods permit.
