Non alcalized cocoa powder
Pure, natural, non-alkalized cocoa powder.
Alkalization is a chemical process in which cocoa is washed in alkaline solution of potassium carbonate in order to reduce its acidity. This process is often applied to lower quality cocoa of poorer taste profiles. Alkalized cocoa powder has a neutral pH, it is dark, less bitter and it disolves better. On the other hand, the process kills many healthy benefits cocoa powder naturally offers. You can tell non-alkalized cocoa powder easily thanks to its ligter brown colour. You can use it in baking or to make hot chocolate.
