Caramel and malt 

At the forefront of this cacao powder, a malty biscuit-like flavour sits comfortably alongside the cacao and adds a level of sweetness ideal for baking and confectionery. With a prominent red-brown colour, it can also add an elegant finish to your creation.

Fat content, and why it matters

Much like the varieties of chocolate, fat content varies between each type of cacao powder.  A high fat content creates a more rounded mouthfeel and less astringent flavours. A low fat content means the natural bitterness and fruit flavours of the cacao have a much stronger presence, with a lower level of sweetness. This particular powder has a high fat content of 20-22%, meaning the smoother texture compliments the flavour of the malt and caramel. 


The pairing recommendations 

This cacao powder is a fantastic option for decoration and dusting applications. Due to its dispersibility, this powder can be used for dusting desserts plenty of time prior to serving. Perfect for dessert preparation! Below are some pairings that would best complement this flavour profile:

  • Apple
  • Dried apricot
  • Roasted hazelnut
  • Sultanas
  • Caramel
  • Caramelised almonds
  • Ice cider
  • Muscat
