CHICAGO — Barry Callebaut has expanded its Bensdorp range to include Bensdorp Clean Brown and Bensdorp Clean Red cocoa powders. The cocoa powders are alkalized with baking soda, which allows for the declaration of “cocoa processed with baking soda” instead of “cocoa process with alkali” on an ingredient label.
Potential applications are baked foods, ice cream and beverages. Barry Callebaut will introduce the two new cocoa powders at SupplySide West Sept. 25-28 in Las Vegas.“We are proud to offer a sophisticated solution to meet increasing demand for recognizable ingredients on-pack,” said Leanne de Muijnck, global director of cocoa R.&D. “Bensdorp Clean provides truly rich colors and flavors while being processed with baking soda, a consumer-friendly ingredient. The new powders provide all of the traditional benefits of alkalized Bensdorp powders but with a cleaner label.”
