Dutch Cocoa Powder

This cocoa powder comes from cocoa beans which grow on the cacao tree, or Theobroma cacao. The name of this tree means “food of the gods” and for a long time, this is exactly what people thought cacao beans were.

You can also use this cocoa powder in savory applications. It is excellent with beef, in stews, and in chilis. You may like to sprinkle your cheese with a dash of this powder, or add it to vegetable-based dishes. If you are familiar with Mexican cuisine, this is an ingredient in some versions of mole poblano. It’s great in enchilada recipes as well!

Dutch Process Cocoa Powder has a more neutral chocolate taste than natural cocoa powder. It is rich and some tasters say it has a bit of earthiness to it.
