DeZaan™ Launches Low Fat Cocoa Powder

DeZaan™ Launches Low Fat Cocoa Powder


Cocoa and chocolate expert ADM Cocoa is delighted to announce the launch of a new deZaan™ reduced-fat cocoa powder with only 0.5% fat. D-00-ZR retains the great chocolaty taste of deZaan™ ZR cocoa powders but with virtually no fat content.Available worldwide from this summer, D-00-ZR enables users to formulate lower calorie products with lower saturated fat contents, but that still retain the desired chocolaty taste, as well as the bright chocolate colour that improves visual appeal, differentiating products in the market. It enhances the quality of formulations where fat can have a negative effect, such as protein foam based confectionery and bakery products.

Brent Cuddy, trade director, cocoa powder says, “The presence of fat may have a negative effect on the functionality of ingredients in the formulation, but at the same time fat also provides flavour to a product. D-00-ZR delivers the flavour not the fat. Due to the unique production processes of D-00-ZR, the cocoa solids are able to carry an intense chocolaty flavour. Consumers nowadays are more health-conscious but still look for great flavours and indulgence. This unique reduced–fat cocoa powder helps achieve this with ultra low fat levels.

D-00-ZR is also compatible with more delicately textured products such as meringue and sponge cakes. Normally, a reduced-fat cocoa powder containing 10-12% fat or more will force these kinds of products to lose crucial structural properties. D-00-ZR overcomes this, allowing them to hold their light structure while providing an intense chocolate flavour and pleasant milk or dark chocolate colour, depending on the concentration.”

deZaan™ offers a range of premium cocoa powders and chocolate with varying flavour profiles, fat content and pH levels to suit a variety of applications from chocolate milk and chocolate muffins to ice cream bars, breakfast cereals and high end chocolates. deZaan’s™’ unique performance cocoa powders help optimize usage levels and reduce cost in use, whilst delivering a full, rich cocoa and chocolate flavour. Other products from deZaan™ include high quality cocoa butter, liquor and most recently, chocolate and compound confectionery products, including toppings, curls, batons and chocolate powders.
