Sidebar: Benefits of cocoa
There is growing evidence that chocolate and cocoa contain beneficial compounds similar to those
found in many fruits, vegetables, tea, and wine called polyphenols. Many of these compounds have
antioxidant properties. The types of antioxidant polyphenols found in cocoa are flavonoids, or even
more specifically, flavanols. This class of compounds include catechins, epicatechins, and
procyandins. In general, the antioxidant polyphenols are found in the cocoa or nonfat portions of
chocolate.
There are two types of cocoa: natural (nonalkalinized) and Dutch Process (alkalinized). Natural
cocoa powder (also called unsweetened) is simply untreated cocoa powder; it is rarely labeled with
the word natural on the package, but will simply say cocoa. Dutch Process cocoa -- so named
because a Dutch man invented the process –– has been treated with an alkali to reduce its
harshness and acidity. Along the way, "dutching" gives the cocoa a rich dark appetizing color,
mellow toasted flavor, and coffee notes.
If a recipe simply calls for cocoa, use natural cocoa. Because Dutch Process cocoa is more alkaline,
it may alter the chemistry in a recipe, reacting differently than natural cocoa with baking soda or
baking powder. Also, the alkali is shown to reduce the content of the beneficial polyphenols.
It's best to store cocoa away from herbs and spices and other aromatic substances, as it picks up
other flavors relatively easily.
