Customer questions about this product

What is the difference between Dutch cocoa and natural cocoa?
At first glance, Dutch-processed cocoa is darker in color than natural cocoa powder. Though both types of cocoa powder are acidic, Dutch cocoa powder has been washed in a potassium solution to neutralize its acidity, which produces its dark, rich color. Natural cocoa powder tends to have a lighter color because of the acids left intact. Most cocoa powder you will find in American grocery stores is natural cocoa powder. In terms of baking, Dutch cocoa powder is often paired with baking powder, whereas natural cocoa powder is usually paired with baking soda.

    This is high quality natural cocoa powder that we use often in our bakery. I was glad to see a smaller amount available for purchase so I don't have to buy 25 pounds if we don't have the space.

    this is a great all around "mid range" cocoa powder. it's a general/all purpose version, not too crazy chocolately and not too ... flavorless. it works well in lots of different baking applications. i made brownies with it and theyre great
