Description Ingredients & Technical Information Formulation and Usage Information

Cocoa (Theobroma cacao) is the dried and partially fermented fatty seed of the cacao tree from which chocolate is made. "Cocoa" can often also refer to cocoa powder, the dry powder made by grinding cocoa seeds and removing the cocoa butter from the dark, bitter cocoa solids; or it may refer to the combination of both cocoa powder and cocoa butter together.

A cocoa pod has a rough leathery rind about 3 cm thick (this varies with the origin and variety of pod). It is filled with sweet, mucilaginous pulp called 'baba de cacao' in South America, enclosing 30 to 50 large almond-like seeds (beans) that are fairly soft and pinkish or purplish in color.

Cocoa solids is a term for the nonfat component of chocolate. It may also be called cocoa powder when sold as an end product. The fatty component of chocolate is cocoa butter. The separation of the two may be accomplished by a press, or by the Broma process.
