Cocoa powders for a premium color sensory

- We recommend to use 5% of cocoa powder in your recipe. For a darker color, either increase the amount or switch to a powder with a higher degree of alkalisation.

- The dry color of the powder changes as the powder is blended in the application. Therefore when selecting your color, we recommend to always test the wet (intrinsic) color.

- In application, low fat cocoa powders have a darker color than their high fat counterparts with the same degree of alkalisation.

Irresistible textures

- Cocoa powders with higher fat levels bring a longer lasting flavor and a smoother texture.

- Ice creams prepared with high fat cocoa powders have a longer melting time allowing a better stability.

- For a delicious multi-textured chewy stracciatella effect add 5% of Croquoa inclusions. Only made out of 2 ingredients: cocoa & sugar!

Chocolate Claims

When blended with sugar, Bensdorp’s selection of high fat cocoa powders (20/22 & 22/24) allow you to claim ‘Chocolate’ on your package.

Dairy-free indulgence
