Product Abstract – Murumuru butter is rich in lauric, myristic and oleic acid. The quality of murumuru butter is similar to the seed fat of the tucumã palm and coconut palm, but provids greater consistency because of its melting point (33 C), which is superior to that of the tucumã palm (30 ºC) and coconut palm (22.7 ºC). The quality of murumuru butter makes it possible to mix it with other vegetable butters that have a lower melting point. It can also be used to partially substitute cocoa butter in chocolate, providing a firmer consistency in environments where the temperature is higher.
