Company: ADM Cocoa, Milwaukee
Ingredient Snapshot: ADM Cocoa’s deZaan brand has launched TRUEDARK, the first dark, natural (nonalkalized) cocoa powder that mimics the enhanced color and flavor intensities of alkalized cocoa powders. According to the company, these characteristics allow food manufacturers to meet clean label trends by presenting familiar and identifiable ingredients with the ability to label, in the U.S., TRUEDARK as cocoa rather than as cocoa processed with alkali. In addition, manufacturers can use TRUEDARK to create new products without compromising taste, color, performance or quality by delivering rich cocoa taste and a bold brown color naturally. It performs well in bakery, cookie, confectionery, ice cream and chocolate-flavored dessert applications.
