Cocoa powder is the core of a chocolate's flavor. It is the dry solid remains of fermented, dried, and roasted cacao beans. Dutch process cocoa powder is washed with a potassium carbonate solution that neutralizes cocoa's acidity to a pH of 7 which gives the powder a noticeably darker hue. It has a smoother, more mellow flavor that's often associated with earthy, woodsy notes. Recipes that use Dutch process cocoa are usually leavened by baking powder, which has a neutral pH.
Natural cocoa is packed with powerful nutrients, antioxidants, and is an excellent source of fiber and iron. It is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium and has more calcium per serving than cow’s milk. Cocoa is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals (serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine) associated with feelings of wellbeing.
