Is Cocoa Butter Vegan and Dairy-Free?
Good news, yes, cocoa butter is dairy free and vegan! While many in the dairy-free and vegan communities see the word butter and assume that cocoa butter contains milk, this is not the case. Cocoa butter is actually the fat portion of the cocoa bean and is a completely vegetarian fat source. It's this fat which is directly responsible for the melt-in-your-mouth quality of chocolate, which is essentially cocoa butter that has been recombined with cocoa solids like cocoa powder.
