This is the first product obtained after processing of cocoa beans. It is also known as cocoa mass, chocolate liquor, cocoa paste, chocolate paste or just chocolate as per United States Food Standards of Identity. Once further refined it is also called unsweetened baking chocolate.

Cocoa Mass is at the heart of chocolate. It’s the product from which cocoa butter and cocoa powder are isolated and is the key raw material for making milk and dark chocolates. It also finds usage in ice-creams, bakery and confectionery.

Our Elephant brand Cocoa Liquor comes from Ghana beans that are not blended with any other. There are few suppliers around the world who can make such a claim. This mass has a minimum fineness of 98% and a strong rich flavour of roasted cocoa.
