Organic dutched/alkalized cocoa powder is an unsweetened powder produced by the grinding of cocoa beans and fat extraction resulting in cocoa butter. The cocoa is considered to be alkalized or “dutched” due to its production process which balances the PH of the cocoa powder giving it a less acidic and milder flavor. This dutched/alkalized version has a darker, almost reddish color and a mild, yet assertive, taste without overpowering other remaining ingredients. It is a great choice for cooking and baking due to its higher solubility rather than natural cocoa, since most of the fat has been removed. This product is ideal for vegans since there are no genetically modified organisms (NON-GMO), animal by-products or chemicals. The dutched/alkalized organic cocoa provides consumers with energy-boosting nutrients loaded with minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium which will make for a great health ingredient.
