Deep, strong cacao taste

An intense cacao taste with high bitterness makes this cacao powder the ideal option for bakers and chocolatiers in need of a high bitter profile with an intensely dark, charcoal colour to match.

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. With an extremely low fat percentage, the cacao flavour and bitterness are much more present in this powder. 


Why use a dark cacao powder? 

The dark range of cacao powders are multi-application (much like a light cacao powder), but a darker powder will often have a higher level of bitterness and a stronger cacao flavour, meaning it’s an ideal pairing for a sweeter product.


The pairing recommendations 

This is a dark and bitter flavour profile that best suits bakery and confectionery recipes. Below are some pairings that would best compliment this flavour profile:
