Made from the mildly sweet cacao fruit, sweetened with cacao natural sugars and nothing else. Clean ingredients and without cane sugar, no added vanilla and no emulsifier... not even extra cocoa butter is added. The natural sweetness is from the addition of the fragrant and fruity cocoa pulp that coats the precious cocoa beans. This is cacao fruit purity in the form of chocolate with a balanced flavor.

Cacao Fruit Chocolate from Santa Barbara Chocolate

  • Cacao Fruit Taste: bittersweet and dark with natural tropical flavors, vibrant and fresh.

  • Ecuador cacao fruit is used in making this gourmet chocolate.

  • Sweetened naturally by the cacao itself.

  • Only one ingredient source: pure 100% cacao fruit.


Whole Fruit Chocolate Handling tips:

  • Melt below 104F when working with whole fruit chocolate because of its delicate and raw, fresh fruit nature.

  • If you want to temper whole fruit chocolate, melt it below 104F, crystallize at 81F, work at 88F, and cool at 68F.

  • Store tightly sealed to protect from humidity (relative humidity should be 50% or less). Cacao fruit chocolate absorbs moisture quickly and can develop a thick viscosity.
