Cocoa Powder exporters

by James Crook (2020-01-07)

Cocoa Powder
is made from chocolate fluid (which is sold solidified as Unsweetened Baking Chocolate.) Chocolate liquor on average is about 55% cocoa butter, and 45% cocoa solids. About 50 to 70% of the Cocoa butter (fat) is removed from the chocolate liquor, leaving mostly cocoa solids behind. These are then dried, and ground to a powder.
