Our organic cocoa powder is available in bulk for wholesale in its natural and alkalized forms. The natural cocoa powder is the natural powder from roasted cocoa beans; it is acidic and bitter, with a very strong and concentrated chocolate flavour. On the other hand, in the alkalized cocoa powder, the cocoa beans have been washed in an alkaline solution of potassium carbonate. This wash neutralizes their acidity and makes the colour darker, the flavour mellow, and the powder dissolves easily into liquids. Besides that, the percentages indicate the fat level; for example, "10-12%" means that the fat level in that ingredient is between 10 and 12 %).
In the food industry, you will often see alkalized organic cocoa referred to as 'Dutch cocoa' or 'European style cocoa'. Generally speaking, organic cocoa powder contains Polyphenols, natural antioxidants that are said to improve blood flow and reduce inflammation amongst a long list of other health benefits.
Whether in its natural or alkalized form, our organic cocoa powder is processed to ensure food safety standards are met. Cocoa powder is won from the cacao fruit by removing the cacao beans. The beans are fermented, dried, roasted, and cracked into nibs. The cocoa butter is then extracted from the nibs by pressing them into a paste known as chocolate liquor. Finally, this is dried and ground into cocoa powder. Alkalized organic cocoa powder undergoes an additional process in which it is washed in a potassium carbonate solution to neutralise its acidity and increase its solubility.
