Guittard 50 lb. Cocoa Rouge 22-24% Fat Dutched Cocoa Powder
The Guittard 50 lb. Cocoa Rouge 22-24% fat Dutched cocoa powder has been carefully made from bean to cocoa, crafted with generations of French artisan chocolate-making experience. With a deep red color with a rich, fudge-like flavor and intense, full-bodied overtone, this cocoa powder adds an iconic chocolate flavor to drinks and baked goods. When making this cocoa, Guittard transforms the natural beauty of cacao into beautiful cocoa powder that's perfect for made-from-scratch bakeries, artisan chocolate shops, and high-quality restaurants and cafes. For further improvements on their chocolate's flavor and quality, Guittard continuously works with the government and local organizations in the cacao's country of origin, protecting the natural flavor profiles of the regions' cacao to ensure the unique taste and aroma for all of their chocolates. Plus, Guittard seals their coca rouge in canisters, maintaining the cocoa powder's freshness and keeping away any intrusive aromas.
Monitoring every step in the chocolate making process is essential for Guittard as they pride themselves on achieving the most natural flavor profile, ensuring eco-friendly and long-lasting growing practices, and equality for all of their growers. Guittard then invests in various ways of naturally fermenting cacao beans to develop certain flavor characteristics, and then sun drying beans that are specifically raked in traditional drying patterns. From there, the beans are shipped to Guittard's state-of-the-art headquarters in California to finish the carefully curated process of turning naturally grown cacao into Guittard's famous chocolate.
Essential for any made-from-scratch bakeries, artisan chocolate shops, and high-quality restaurants and cafes that use the finest products, this cocoa powder is more than an ingredient: it is the multi-dimensional element that takes your recipe to the next level. Thanks to its fine powder consistency, it's easy to incorporate into a multitude of different mixes, batters, and frostings. Sift the cocoa powder into quick breads, sables, brownies, cakes, and tarts for a deeper, more profound tasting experience. Or, use in drinks to create an irresistible beverage menu. Cocoa powder can be used to rim the glasses of a signature chocolate cocktail, or to create the rich, creamy hot chocolate beverage option that is loved by customers young and old. Plus, it's easy to fold into buttercream to frost your cakes with a gorgeous, sought-after deeply chocolate brown hue.
For five generations, Guittard has been endlessly evolving their artisanal craft to bring the most flavorful, sustainable, and socially responsible chocolate to the industry. During the California Gold Rush in the mid 1800's, Etienne Guittard discovered the demand his chocolate garnered among the wealthy chocolate miners and, with his newfound passion, grew his business into a leader in the chocolate industry. Through their stewardship, Guittard has donated funding, time, and product to community projects across America, worked to continually reduce their environmental impact, and empowered their cacao growers in order to obtain a chocolate that contains optimal flavor, quality, and value. At Guittard, their chocolate not only enhances flavor profiles, but helps them unite the world through social responsibility, sustainability, and equality. It's true what they say: chocolate cures all.
