The difference between natural and dutch-processed cocoa powder is relatively simple. Treated with an alkaline solution, dutch processed cocoa powder’s acidity is neutralized, whereas natural powders remain acidic. This alkaline treatment not only reduces acidity but is also responsible for the darker coloring and variation in flavor. Natural cocoa powder, along with its acidity and lighter coloring, also has a more nuanced taste on the palate with distinctly fruity notes. The darker dutch-processed varieties have a milder, more subdued flavor.
Smooth and delicate in taste, black cocoa powder dissolves more easily into recipes, imbuing its deep, jet black coloring quickly. A universal favorite among pastry chefs and cake decorators who want to create striking desserts with intense colors naturally. Avoid artificial colorants and boost taste with black cocoa. Sold in three-pound bags, they are available singly or in bulk cases of six. So whether you’re an avid home baker trying to enhance the look and taste of their desserts or a busy chef in a commercial kitchen, get the amounts you require easily and quickly right here at Gourmet Food Store!
