Dutch processed cocoa powder treats natural cocoa with an alkali, to neutralise acidic notes, making it richer and easier to work with. With a pure, intense cocoa taste and a warm, almost mahogany colour, this is top quality cocoa at its very best.

Best Chocolate Cake Ever

The product doesn't taste discernibly different from natural cocoa powder, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I baked with it. It does look darker than natural cocoa powder. As I understand it, you can substitute this in any recipe that uses baking powder, but for baking soda recipes, use natural cocoa powder.

Good quality cocoa

The cocoa is firstly packaged in a very neat little tin. When you open the foil cover the rich dark brown colour and aroma is so obvious. Compared it to some other cocoa I have and the colour difference already sold me. The flavour and richness is awesome. Just want to bake now!

Fantastic product

I absolutely love this cocoa. It is a rich brown colour and the taste is so intense. Usually when I bake chocolate cakes with standard cocoa, I add more than the recipe states and I also add additional coffee powder just to give it a richer taste. With this product it's not necessary! Love it!

Very happy with this product and will certainly keep stock of it in my pantry.

As a lil side note, after doing some research on dutch processed cocoa, I discovered that it's best to use in conjunction with baking soda and not baking powder because of the chemical reaction- so use Read more
