Cupuacu is native to Latin America. It is wild, evergreen tree (Theobroma grandiflorum) and grows at the north parts of the Amazonia rain forests. Due to the fact that Cupuacu is close relative to cocoa tree it has tasty chocolate aroma with light notes of pineapple. In Brazil and in other Latin American countries with rain forests, the locals use Cupuacu fruits to prepare different sweets – from traditional ice cream to juices, cakes and candies. That was why Cupuacu butter is also known as Brazilian White Chocolate. Cupuacu Fruits are quite large – their size is similar to middle sized watermelon. The Cupuacu seeds are placed in the fleshy, juicy inside of the fruit. The Cupuacu butter is obtained from the seeds after processing – cold pressing and filtration. The final product is Cupuacu Butter – very similar as taste and aroma to the cocoa butter. This organic butter, except as traditional food, is very wide used in cosmetology.
