Premium Dutch Cocoa Powder, also known as Dutch-processed cocoa, is made when chocolate liquor is pressed to remove three quarters of its cocoa butter. The remaining cocoa solids are processed to make fine unsweetened cocoa powder. It is perfect to use in brownies, cakes and cookies. Dutch cocoa powder is not always interchangeable with natural cocoa powder because it is missing the acids needed to leaven baked goods. This is why Dutch cocoa is often used in combination with baking powder, to make up for the absence of acids and help baked goods rise.
