This version of cocoa butter has the wonderful color of fragrant cocoa butter but less odor than regular cocoa butter. The color is a warm, straw color and will add a rich note to products where cocoa butter is heavily used. In products that use cocoa butter lightly, I don't expect any color to come through.
This version is without the intense odor because the strong, yummy scent of chocolate isn't appropriate in all applications. I like to think of body butters, lip balms, and other salve like products that have fresh, fruity, marine, or green scents. These scents shouldn't have to compete or drown out a chocolate odor. So, use deodorized when you need to make something like this. If you need a guaranteed odorless cocoa butter, then White Cocoa Butter is what you need.
If you are making a vanilla, spice, coffee, or chocolatey scented product, then you should use regular cocoa butter.
Theobroma Cacao trees have really struggled in the last many years with disease. The countries that are major producers of cacao beans, and their supplementary products, have been under domestic unrest. All of these problems have cause cocoa butter prices to climb. We offer this deodorized cocoa butter to help ease the impact of the price increases of cocoa butter. If you absolutely must have White Cocoa Butter, please contact our bulk ordering staff. If the slight addition of a warm yellow color isn't an issue in your product, you will appreciate this price holding strategy by using the deodorized version.
As with any product in our catalog, if you have questions, please ask. We would love to help you get from problem to solution as quickly as possible.
We've added beautiful wafers to save tired hands from chipping this brittle butter. Now you have more time for formulating! Each wafer weighs between 0.06 and 0.09 ounces (or 1.8 and 2.6 grams).
Summer Shipping Note: Since Cocoa Butter has a melting point between 86-96 °F (30-36 °C), the wafers may partially melt during transit in warm weather. This is normal, and you will still be able to break apart the wafers for use.
