What is Cacao Butter?
This Cacao is the native-born heirloom Ecuadorian species named Arriba Nacional-Fino de Aroma. This variety of Cacao is considered worldwide to have the finest floral aroma and flavor profile, as well as, the highest amount of bioavailable nutrients and minerals.

One of Ultimate SuperFoods' key concerns in preserving this species is promoting the cultivation of this incredibly fragrant heirloom cacao variety that is unaltered from its natural integrity. Like so many other natural foods, this heirloom species has been hybridized by many growers to increase yield and particular characteristics. However, Ultimate SuperFoods believes that hybridization greatly compromises quality, so we only use the Arriba Nacional-Fino de Aroma heirloom variety.

AdditionInformation About Raw Cacao Butter:

Cacao butter is a light yellow fatty solid made from the pure, cold-pressed oil of the cacao bean used as an ingredient in cosmetics, soaps, lotions and chocolate. Cacao butter is also used as a massage oil that is relaxing and nourishes the skin. Cacao means "food of the gods". It has a higher concentration of antioxidants than any other food. Eating chocolate releases endorphins that make us feel happy.

Raw organic cacao butter has an excellent texture when added to food, a delightful aroma of chocolate and is an excellent skin and hair moisturizer. Cacao butter has been used for centuries as a skin moisturizer. The butter melts at skin temperature and is readily absorbed into the skin. It is often used in commercial lotions and creams and is also recommended for the treatment of dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. It is effective in helping to fade stretch marks after pregnancy and to erase acne scars.

Although cacao butter is high in saturated fat, research has shown that it does not elevate blood sugar levels or blood cholesterol levels. This may be due to the fact that cacao butter is high in stearic acid and that may actually reduce cholesterol levels.

Cacao is rich in magnesium, iron, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, Omega 6 fatty acids, seratonin, etc. . Cacao butter has antioxidant properties due to tocopherols and polyphenols that suppress free radicals. Cacao butter has a shelf life of up to three years because of its natural antioxidants.

Why choose Ultimate Superfoods Raw Organic Cacao Butter?

  • Our raw Cacao beans are hand peeled, never machine processed.
  • Ultimate Superfoods Raw Cacao retains its natural qualities through a sun drying process, opposed to heating or roasting.
  • Cacao Powder: the fat content/cacao butter in our powder is from 22-26% and due to the extra fat carries fuller flavor, less oxidation and more nutritional benefit.
  • Other cacao powders on the market are superheated to extract the most fat out of the liqueur for cacao butter, so you're left with cacao powder that has about 7-10% fat.
  • Other cacao powders are heated to a minimum of 280 degrees plus tons of oxidizing pressure.
  • Cacao contains Theobromine a weak but effective stimulant and includes substances that are chemically and pharmacologically related to the brain lipids anandamide. The word anandamide is derived from ananda, Sanskrit for 'bliss'. These N-acylethanolamines in cacao target the endogenous cannabinoid system of the brain, slightly mimicking the psychotropic effects caused by plant-derived cannabinoid drugs either directly (by activating cannabinoid receptors) or indirectly (by increasing anandamide levels in the brain).

Suggested Use:
Cacao butter and cacao powder: add to smoothies and baking recipes to enhance flavor and nutritional benefits.
