Cocoa Powder


Definition: An unsweetened powder produced by grinding cacao beans and pressing out the cocoa butter (fat). This powder gives an intense chocolate taste to baked goods. It is commonly available in “Dutch-processed” (alkalized) or natural varieties. The alkalized version is lighter in color and has a less assertive chocolate taste.
