Cocoa powder is an end product after cacao beans have been fermented, roasted and pressed to extract most of the cocoa butter. The cocoa powder appears as the powder of the dry solids with a small remaining amount of cocoa butter. Untreated cocoa powder is bitter and acidic. Dutch process cocoa has been treated with an alkaline to neutralize the acid. Cocoa powder contains flavanols, which are reduced if the cocoa is subjected to acid-reducing alkalization.
The picked cocoa beans need to be dried and dehydrated before they can be processed and stored. Its role is to enhance and perfect the aroma of cocoa beans so that the material produces a bright lustre. The roasted cocoa is chopped into granules, and at the same time, the split shell, germ and bean are separated. Roasted cocoa beans will be ground into cocoa butter. The oil is squeezed out of the cocoa mass with a liquid hydraulic press, and the cocoa cake is removed. Then the cocoa cake will be placed in a powdered machine to obtain the final cocoa powder.
