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 versatile Ghirardelli 5 lb. sunrise dutch cocoa powder makes an excellent addition to any bakery! Use it for cake batters, muffins, mousse, ganache, or topping decadent desserts. It even enhances signature mochas, hot chocolate bases, gelato, and chocolate ice cream bases with its exquisite, bold chocolate flavor. Dutch-processed cocoa, such as this, is treated with an alkali to neutralize its acids. This process gives it a dark, reddish-brown color and a European bittersweet flavor that complements other baking ingredients. Containing 15-17% cocoa butter, this dutch cocoa powder is a must-have for your business.

Customers will recognize and trust the Ghirardelli name when they see it in your cafe, coffee shop, ice cream parlor, or restaurant. Ghirardelli began with a young Italian chocolatier in the early 1800s and is now a brand widely known for its rich flavors. This sense of quality is the result of Ghirardelli's commitment to control all steps of the chocolate-making process, from roasting the cocoa beans, to refining the product for smoothness and well-balanced flavor. In addition, the company understands that sustainable sourcing and knowing the origins of the cocoa beans speaks to the quality of the finished product. No matter what dish or drink you prepare, guests are in for a treat with this sunrise natural cocoa powder!

    I love this ghirardelli cocoa powder. The rich color and taste makes my baking super delicious. Even after the shipping it’s a great value. I’m going to order 25 lbs now.
    Fantastic product for a great price! We use this for all of our chocolate products at our small bakery. Very rich, dark-tasting chocolate but not overpowering.
    I love this cocoa powder. It's more expensive than Hershey's but it's got a very rich flavor that gives a lot of depth to baked goods.
    Love this cocoa. Comes in a sealed bag inside a box. I take pour the cocoa in a separate container for easy storage and use. Amazing chocolate flavor in all my baking
    Tastes great and has a good aroma. I did not like the packaging too much because it was hard not to be messy and not get it everywhere. Would suggest to empty the bag on a container where its easier to scoop and use.
    Really nice, fine cocoa powder. This is a large amount, and per ounce is a better deal than the smaller ones. It's a nice product for cakes and frostings.
    Bought this 5lb Ghiradelli Sunrise cocoa only to turn around and buy a 25lb box the next week. Even with shipping it is a great deal. But the real test is the flavor. Very good quality cocoa.
