Unrefined cocoa butter has a pale yellowish or slight brown colour. It also has similar odour that is typically associated with chocolate. For some applications, the natural colour and odour of cocoa butter are not ideal. So cocoa butter is deodorised to give a product that has a neutral pale appearance.


When cocoa butter is deodorised, it changes. It is deodorised by injecting steam into the melted cocoa butter. This pushes out volatile components which contribute to the natural odour of cocoa butter. The result is a reduction in odour.
