Cocoa powderChocolate powder, Cacao powder

Ingredient Type: Flavoring (natural)

Cocoa powder is a natural powder that is derived from cocoa beans, which come from the cacao tree. The powder is made by extracting the fat or cocoa butter from the beans and then grinding the remaining solids into a fine powder. Cocoa powder is used in a wide range of food products, including protein powders, due to its rich chocolate flavor and numerous health benefits.

In protein powders, cocoa powder is added to enhance the flavor of the product. It provides a rich, chocolate taste that is often used to mask the taste of other ingredients that may be less palatable. Additionally, cocoa powder contains antioxidants, including flavanols, which can help protect cells from oxidative stress and inflammation. It is also a source of magnesium, which is important for many bodily functions, including muscle and nerve function, and blood sugar control.
