Olam Cocoa

Olam Cocoa presented their deZaan D11BK cocoa powder, which is the first ever nib alkalized, black cocoa powder that provides both intense cocoa flavor and very dark color, without added sodium. Excessive salt intake remains a serious health concern globally, with the majority of it consumed unknowingly in processed foods. Unlike other dark cocoa powders, which are typically processed using sodium alkalizing agents, D11BK uses potassium instead, reducing the sodium in the formulation while maintaining the flavor and color impact benefits of a typical dark cocoa powder.
