Natural Cocoa Butter - 100% Venezuelan Cacao

Our Derivative Products of Cacao are the result of grinding the premium blend of roasted "Trinitario" and "Amazónico" Cocoa Beans. These beans grow and are harvested in the beautiful lands of Venezuela, in the north of South America and facing the Caribbean Sea. Delicacies Valley is the direct importer and sole distribution source in Canada for these rare cacaos from Venezuela.
It has been scientifically proven that the first cacao plants on planet Earth were born in two areas of Venezuelan territory. One, located in the south of “Lake of Maracaibo”, a region that covers parts of the states Zulia, Mérida and Trujillo, forests of cacao trees so-called "Cacaos Criollos", known for the opalescent quality and whiteness of its almonds, its fruity flavor and the sensuality of its aromas, capable of giving an incomparable chocolate, with delicate and persistent flavor. The other zone of Venezuela where the cocoa trees were grown is a region that covers “Paria”, “Delta del Orinoco” and “Amazonas”, there were born the trees of “Forastero” species, appreciated for their strength, resistance and productivity, rather than for their aromas or flavors.
The “Trinitarios” cacaos, descendants of the Criollo and Forastero or Amazónico were born in the zones of the Delta of Venezuela, from where were brought to the island of Trinidad.
For this reason, Venezuela is called the Homeland of Cocoa.
Properties and Qualities: It is no accident that the main product of cacao, the chocolate, has been called the drink of the gods and was reserved for the elites of society, religious hierarchs, kings and emperors. In addition to the aroma, tannins, and flavors, the cocoa is rich in natural antioxidants. In cocoa beans, we also find alkaloids such as theobromine and caffeine, which are dilating vessels, cardiovascular stimulants, the central nervous system, and appetite. Cocoa also has natural serotonin that works in the brain as a neurotransmitter and infallible ingredient against depression and phenyl-ethyl-amine, known as the molecule of love.
Common use: The Cocoa Butter is obtained by the pressing of the Cocoa Liquor. The Cocoa Butter is basically cocoa fat, a yellowish liquid that crystallizes at ambient temperature. It is also used in the preparation of chocolate and other sweet food. Thanks to its capacity of being easily melted by the corporal temperature, it is widely used in the cosmetic industry.
