The cocoa butter equivalents (CBE Ð mainly shea, illipe, sal, and palm) have physical properties and molecular structure similar to that of cocoa butter, and are thus, increasingly employed for varieties of chocolate confections. The cocoa butter substitutes have witnessed a surge in their prices, owing to the higher demands. However, their prices are still half, when compared to cocoa butter, which maintains their affordability, and as a result, increases its demand.

Factors, like unfavorable weather and political and economic scenario, can drastically affect the sustainable procurement. Thus compound chocolate significantly reduce the complexities associated with cocoa-based products.
