Pure Chocolate Extract is a fat free product containing volatile 'top notes' which are lost in the processing of cocoa. Before processing, cocoa beans are about 50% cocoa butter. The beans are processed, using heat and pressure to separate the cocoa from the cocoa butter, resulting in a loss of flavor in the remaining cocoa. This flavor loss is, understandably, not something that the cocoa manufacturers are eager to talk about. Chocolate Extract can be used to replace these lost flavors, enhancing and balancing the overall chocolate characteristics.
