Cocoa Powder - Organic
Botanical Name: Theobroma cacao
Production: This cocoa is made from sustainably sourced, carefully selected raw materials to provide premium quality, consistency, and flavour.
Qualities: Alkalized cocoa, also known as "Dutched" cocoa or "European style", is washed with a potassium carbonate solution that neutralizes cocoa's naturally high acidity levels. Alkalized cocoa is a bit darker in colour and has a mellow flavour that is often associated with earthy, woodsy flavours. Alkalized 10/12%.
Common Use: Because alkalized cocoa isn't acidic, it doesn't react with leaveners like baking soda, so recipes with alkalized cocoa are usually leavened by baking powder, which has a neutral pH. This cocoa is great in baking and any other recipes or mixtures that call for cocoa - like a great cup of hot chocolate!
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
