Question: Explain for us the difference between "natural" flavour profiles and "alkaline" flavour profiles - thanks?
Answer 1: Cocoa can be "natural" or processed with alkali. Recipes will specify which cocoa to use, and it is important to use the correct type, since leavening is affected. Cocoa that has been Dutch-Processed, or alkalized, has a richer, smoother, more intense cocoa taste than natural cocoa. Hershey's cocoa is natural, Fry's is Dutch-Processed.

Answer 2: Alkalized cocoa powder, sometimes called "Dutched" cocoa powder has a smoother, more mellow flavor that's often associated with earthy, woodsy notes. (By Yupik MANUFACTURER on November 4, 2020)
