Title: Benefits of Natural and Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder

Benefits of Natural and Dutch Processed Cocoa
Powder There are basically two types of coca
powder which includes the natural powder and the
Dutch processed powder. Both these powders differ
in taste and color. The natural powder is
made from cocoa beans solids which are roasted,
dried and ground into fine powder. This
powder is then packaged and sold. It is quite
similar to the dark roasted coffee beans as it
has a sharp and acidic taste to it. It is
used for baking cakes and other pastries as it
reacts well with baking soda. It has a strong
chocolate flavor to it and it is widely used for
drinking chocolates too.

Differences and Uses The Dutch processed
cocoa powder is neutral in taste with a dark
color. It does not possess an acidic taste as it
is alkalized. This makes it neutral in taste.
This power has a deep flavor and therefore it
seldom reacts with baking powder and other
leavening agents used in cakes and pastries.
Although it is processed, it retains its natural
goodness and flavor. It is essential to use the
right type of powder for different recipes as
interchanging these powders may affect the taste
of cakes and bakery products. However, the
difference is quite negligible and therefore
these powders can be interchanged if essential.

But according to some recipes, interchanging
these two powders can cause serious changes in
the taste and flavors of the dishes. Baking
powder is usually used in combination with Dutch
coca powder whereas baking soda is used with the
natural cocoa as it helps to neutralize the
acidic effects of the natural powder. Both
these products are widely used by bakers and
confectioners to manufacture various chocolate
products. Some bakers use natural powders to
bring forth a strong taste of chocolate whereas
some prefer to use Dutch powders to bake their
products.

Important Benefits There are many health
benefits associated with the use of cocoa powder
as it contains a rich source of antioxidants.
Antioxidants help to fight free radicals in the
body and prevent diseases. It is also known to
be rich in flavonoids which keep the mind and the
body alert and rejuvenated. According to
researches, this miraculous coca powder leads to
the secretion of serotonin from the brain which
elevates the mood. Consumption of dark
chocolate therefore increases the feeling of
happiness and reduces depression to an extent.

Although cocoa is beneficial to health in many
ways, the consumption of milk chocolates can
prove to be unhealthy in many ways as it includes
various fatty substances and sugar. However,
dark chocolates are healthy in many ways as it
includes a large percentage of cocoa in it. So it
is important to choose chocolates according to
the content of cocoa in it. Both natural and
Dutch processed powders are made available easily
through many of the online and offline stores at
affordable price rates. Choose these products
according to the requirement of the recipes as
both these powders are ingrained with different
tastes, colors and textures when baked.
