So, what is manteca cacao?

Manteca de cacao, or cacao butter, is a natural fat extracted from the cacao bean. It has a mild chocolate aroma and flavor, and a smooth, creamy texture that makes it a popular ingredient in chocolate and pastry making. Cacao butter is rich in antioxidants and is high in oleic, stearic, and palmitic acids, which contribute to its moisturizing and nourishing properties for the skin. It can be used in various forms, including as a cooking oil, as a moisturizer, and as a base for homemade cosmetics. Its versatile nature and health benefits make it a valuable addition to any kitchen or beauty routine.
