So, what is cocoa powders?

Cocoa powder is a versatile and delicious ingredient derived from cocoa beans that have been roasted, ground, and pressed to remove most of the cocoa butter. The resulting powder has a rich, chocolatey flavor and is often used in baking and cooking to add depth and complexity to recipes. Cocoa powder can be used to make everything from classic chocolate cakes and brownies to savory dishes like mole sauce. It's also a good source of antioxidants and has been linked to potential health benefits like improved heart health and lower blood pressure. Choose from natural or Dutch-processed varieties depending on your recipe and taste preferences.
