So, what is alkalized cocoa powder?

Alkalized cocoa powder, also known as Dutch-processed cocoa, is cocoa powder that has been treated with an alkalizing agent to reduce its natural acidity. This process results in a cocoa powder that is darker in color, smoother in texture, and has a milder, less bitter flavor than natural cocoa powder. Alkalized cocoa powder is commonly used in baking, especially in recipes that call for baking powder instead of baking soda, as the alkalizing agent in the cocoa powder can help activate the baking powder. Additionally, alkalized cocoa powder can be used in drinks, sauces, and even savory dishes to add a rich, chocolaty flavor.
