    Hi Sabah,
    It has a higher melt point than the butters and oils so needs more heat. Please be patient with it. You will need that 80ºC to melt it and may need to keep on the heat for a short while longer to get it all melted.

    Why does the btms 5 not melt in it

    Hi Chloe,
    Some ingredients like the lipids can be replaced by more of the other ones, but for the most part the other ingredients have a part to play.
