In response to consumer demand for healthier ingredients, Barry Callebaut Group added Natural Dark cocoa powder to its Bensdorp brand. The cocoa powder is processed without alkali and can be used for a clean ingredient list.

“We are delighted to introduce Natural Dark after years of development and continuous improvements,” said Steven Retzlaff, president of global cocoa at Barry Callebaut Group. “Our biggest challenge was to create a cocoa powder that not only delivers a natural dark brown color but also brings a rich, chocolaty flavor that our customers can confidently use across all major applications. Since it’s a 100% natural proposition, we believe that this powder will set a new standard in the years to come.”

Natural Dark delivers tastes of roasted cocoa, spices and dried fruits. It can be used in a wide range of applications such as cakes, brownies and muffins as a natural cocoa powder.
