It kind of taste like white chocolate -- I read somewhere that it is high in lauric acid? is that a good thing or bad?

White chocolate is my favorite but even the organic brands are too sugary for me. I will have to look for cocoa bitter met time I'm at WF

Not really high in lauric acid. 10% or so I think. But high sat fat and delicious. It's basically white chocolate without the sugar so yes it tastes like white choclate. What could be wrong with that?

Hmm...I used to really like white chocolate...you've definitely piqued my interest. The fatty acid profile looks fine.

Where do you buy cocoa butter for human consumption? I've only ever seen it for cosmetic use.

I eat dark chocolate, but not cocoa butter. You could try making your own chocolate. That'd be fun.

Lauric acid is very, very good for you. Breastmilk is very high in it.

Cocoa butter is the fat portion of the cocoa bean. When you eat chocolate you're eating cocoa butter. Much better to eat dark chcocolate 70% or above. Although saturated its not bad for your health.
