So, what is cacao fat?

Cacao fat, also known as cocoa butter, is a natural fat extracted from cocoa beans. It is a key ingredient in many chocolate products due to its rich, smooth, and creamy texture. Cacao fat has a unique melting point that allows it to quickly melt in your mouth, leaving behind a pleasant and velvety sensation. Besides its use in chocolate, cacao fat is also used in the cosmetic industry as a moisturizer and skin conditioner. Additionally, cacao fat is rich in antioxidants and contains oleic acid, which has been linked to reducing inflammation and improving heart health.
