Rodelle Dutch Processed Baking Cocoa

Our Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa is Dutch-processed which provides a much more consistent product and flavor than natural cocoa. The flavor is very decadent which really adds a rich flavor and appearance to all of your baking recipes. When cocoa is Dutch processed it improves the solubility of cocoa powder in beverages. By alkalizing the cocoa, we are reducing some of the sourness and bitterness of cocoa powder. It’s also is much darker than other cocoa and contains a richer flavor.

Rodelle's Gourmet Baking Cocoa starts from 100% Cacao - a nutritional powerhouse known for its antioxidant and flavonoid properties.
