There’s another way to satisfy those chocolate cravings, while adding some health benefits to your diet; cocoa powder. Cocoa powder occurs when the fat, called cocoa butter, gets removed from the cacao beans during processing. The leftover dried solids get ground into the product sold as cocoa powder. Our natural cocoa powder is a wonderful, natural way to give an intense yummy chocolaty flavor to your baked goods, chocolate cakes, brownies, cookies, muffins, icings or hot chocolaty drinks.

Using our natural dark cocoa powder, you can add an intense chocolate flavour to your baked products and create the perfect brownies, cookies, and chocolate cakes.

Cocoa powder is made from cocoa beans that grow in pods on cacao plants. Cacao powder, which is commonly seen in grocery shops, is not the same as cocoa powder. Cacao is a pure, raw kind of chocolate created from the cacao fruit that has been minimally squeezed. Cocoa powder is made from cocoa that has been cooked and processed to give it a smooth chocolatey flavour.

Natural Moreish offers 100% natural Dark Cocoa powder with no additives or preservatives. Keep this delicious and beneficial powder in an airtight container in a dark and cool place. Storing it in the refrigerator may help you keep it fresh for a more extended period.

General Information

Cacao pods, the fruit of the tropical evergreen tree Theobroma cacao, are the starting point for cocoa powder and all-natural chocolate. Each pod contains 20 to 50 beans (also called seeds). According to Gregory Ziegler, a chocolate expert and professor of food science at Penn State University, the beans taste bitter and are surrounded by a fruity-tasting, milky-white pulp. Before being roasted, the beans are fermented, which is an essential step in developing their rich brown colour. Fermented beans are roasted whole or shelled and roasted as nibs.

Next, the nibs are processed into a paste called chocolate liquor, which comprises cocoa solids and cocoa butter. Some of the chocolate liquor is utilised in the production of confectionery and chocolate items. The remaining is pressed to extract the majority of the cocoa butter, which is also used in the production of chocolate. The remaining cocoa solids are ground into small particles to make cocoa powder.

Raw cocoa powder is sandy brown with a red tint and tastes fresh and delicious; Dutch processing darkens the colour to velvety brown or near-black and smooths the chocolate’s more astringent qualities, bringing out its deeper, earthy notes.

Delicious Ways to Use Dark Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is an essential ingredient in chocolate bars, chocolate cake, chocolate icing, and other chocolate-based treats and beverages. You may use cocoa powder to produce chocolate in the kitchen, bake your cakes and pastries, and even create a fantastic facial mask.

Serving and Portion Size

An actual allergy to chocolate or cacao is uncommon. Most chocolate allergies are caused by an allergic reaction to a chocolate component or sensitivity to chocolate alone. Critical allergies should be taken seriously since they can be fatal. Doctors can assist you in identifying your sensitivities and considering treatment choices and alternatives to help you avoid the sense of missing out.

Also, always keep moderation in your mind, because nothing good can be achieved by excessive use of everything.

Storage

Dark Cocoa Powder should be kept in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight as with other spices. It can last for months to years on a shelf in your pantry. This spice can maintain its potency for a more extended time by keeping your Dark Cocoa Powder in a container with tight lids.
