What is cocoa butter and what is it used for?
It's the fat from the cacao bean. It's a texturing agent that gives couverture chocolate a certain degree of flexibility.

Do you produce your own cocoa butter?
Valrhona makes pure cocoa butter couverture chocolates according to Cocoa and Chocolate Directive 2000/36/EC, which means it does not add vegetable fat.
