Chocolate and cocoa products manufacturer Barry Callebaut recently introduced a new, 100% natural dark cocoa powder called Natural Dark through its premium cocoa brand Bensdorp, according to a company release. 

The clean label cocoa was developed by the company in response to an increase in consumer demand for premium products with recognizable ingredients. Barry Callebaut said its use of alkali-free processing results in a product with a dark color and deep flavor. 

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

Natural Dark cocoa powder has a bigger range of applications than traditional cocoa powder, according to the firm. The Bensdorp product will be debuted at the IBIE trade show in Las Vegas, NV this month.
