A cocoa powder range has been boosted by the addition of a new “intense” dark red variant that, according to its maker, is the only colour of its kind available on the market.

Produced as a result of a research and development breakthrough by technical specialists at the Gresik cocoa processing facility in Indonesia, the powder is the latest offering from the Cargill-owned Dutch ingredients firm Gerkens.

Chocolate ice cream, drinks and desserts

It is designed to be used in chocolate ice cream, drinks and desserts with rich colours and flavours, as well as those with contrasting colours and shades.

“This next-generation cocoa powder has an exceptional red colour,”​ said Dick Brinkman, technical service manager at Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate.

‘Further sophistication and choice’

“Looking at the market and consumer insights we have gathered, across all categories there are clear consumer needs regarding further sophistication and choice in chocolate-flavoured products.”

Gerkens’ operates a cocoa powder innovation centre at Wormer in The Netherlands, where more than 100 varieties are produced.
