Gerkens® guarantees goodness by delivering a wide range of high-quality organic cocoa powders with a variety of colors, flavors and application options. Gerkens® provides consistent cocoa solutions for all your organic needs.
Applications & Uses
Cocoa powder is obtained by hydraulic pressing of cocoa mass whereby cocoa butter is separated from the cocoa cake, after which the cocoa cake is pulverized into a fine free flowing cocoa powder. Cocoa mass is produced from cocoa beans, which are deshelled and broken into cocoa nibs (the kernels). These kernels are alkalized (except for the natural cocoa powder), roasted and ground into a fine cocoa mass.
