So, what is masa kakaowa?

Masa kakaowa, also known as cocoa mass, is a key ingredient in the production of chocolate. It is made by grinding cocoa beans into a thick, smooth paste that is rich in flavor and aroma. The paste is then molded into blocks or discs, which are used in the production of various chocolate products. Masa kakaowa has a deep, complex flavor with notes of roasted nuts and bitter chocolate, and is a crucial component in creating the perfect balance of sweetness and richness in chocolate. Its high fat content also makes it an important ingredient in many confectionery items, such as truffles and ganache.
