Cocoa Powder – Natural 5 lbs


This NATURAL cocoa powder is imported from Holland. It is considered a low-fat powder – with 10 – 12% fat but has a strong cocoa flavor.  Natural cocoa powder has NOT been alkalized so it retains the natural acidity from the cocoa beans.

5 lbs – Bag in a box

Whether you use dutch-processed cocoa or natural cocoa powder is a personal preference. With the additional acid in the natural powder (which comes from the cocoa bean)  your recipe will call for baking SODA which will react with the acid in the cocoa powder properly and create the desired leavening (rising) of your baked good.

The pH is approximately 5.7%.

Dutch-processed cocoa powders typically have between 6.8 and 8.5 % ph.

There is currently no FDA standards on whether alkalizing is considered a natural process. So those who are looking for ALL NATURAL cocoa powder tend to go with the natural (unalkalized cocoa powder)  to avoid the question. But some consider the alkalization process natural as manufacturers use a sodium bicarbonate – which is a natural ingredient. Confused yet?? 🙂
