Royal Dutch Cocoa Powder

Preferred Around the World

The “Royal Dutch” is one of the darkest and most highly alkalized powder from the Bensdorp line and has become a preferred powder all over the world for large bakery manufacturers as well as pastry chefs.

Bensdorp is specialized in the production of high-fat cocoa powders that produce that intense full-bodied chocolate flavor when baking rich cakes and pastries. They are also able to manufacture defatted cocoa powder for use in lighter products such as sponge cakes and meringue. World Wide Chocolate offers a selection of Bensdorp Royal Dutch cocoa powders that comes in a range of fat percentages for all your baking needs – from making cakes and meringues to ice cream, mousses, flans, syrups, sauces, fillings and more. Bensdorp’s long-lasting partnership with cocoa farmers in Peru, Ecuador, Ghana, the Dominican Republic, São Tomé, Tanzania and Cameroon has given them access to the world’s most delicious cocoa. They are able to offer Dutched cocoa powders with consistent color and maximum flavor preservation. Dutched cocoa powder (also known as Dutching or alkalization), is a process that neutralizes the cocoa’s acidity to improve the flavor and enhance its solubility in warm applications. It also gives the cocoa its deeper, almost reddish hue.

Bensdorp follows the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra when it comes to their method for making their cocoa powder and other products. The method they use to process cocoa beans into cocoa products essentially has not changed much in the last 150 years. Until this very day, they process their cocoa beans according to the original recipes.
