Cocoa Butter, also called theobroma oil, is basically a pale-yellow, edible fat that is derived or obtained from the cocoa bean. The beans are roasted and finely ground into chocolate liquor that is pressed to extract the butter. Its separation from the fibrous powder present in chocolate liquor allows both the products to recombine at varying levels to prepare chocolate. It is known for its cocoa flavour and aroma and is an essential ingredient in chocolate as well as beauty and cosmetic applications.

Finally, the obtained chocolate liquor is pressed to extract Cocoa Butter, thus, separating it from fibrous powder.
