Olam Cocoa has released a new premium cocoa powder range from Dezaan, with six varieties available.
Flavours range from mild and fruity, to velvety and rich, with a colour palette including Crimson Red, True Dark and Carbon Black.
Simon Brayn-Smith, vice-president of Olam Cocoa for Professionals, commented: "Dezaan cocoa is for the taste-obsessed and we know that taste is the most important factor for chefs when choosing a cocoa brand. There is now a specific range that meets the needs of professionals who want greater control over the flavour and colour of their final creations. Cocoa is a core ingredient and it's time to rethink it. Dezaan cocoa will open up a whole world of creativity and the only limit is your imagination!"
Each Dezaan cocoa offers its own profile, and can be paired with a variety of sweet, savoury, citrus, fruit, as well as sour flavours. Products are suitable for use in a wide range of applications including bakery, desserts, confections, pâtisserie, ice-cream, sauces, and hot and cold drinks. The natural and dutched range is available in 1kg and 5kg formats.
The range is sourced responsibly through Cocoa Compass, who support smallholder farmers, their families and communities, as well as the environment. The company has made a commitment to help farmers achieve a living income, eliminate child labour and protect forests through a net increase in tree carbon stock by 2030.
