Cacao Barry Legere Cocoa Powder with 1% fat is an extra fine with a rich, fudgy chocolate flavor with red fruits, hazelnut, and floral notes. It has a a light pink color when dry, then becomes reddish during production. Legere is a de-fatted, alkalized cacao powder, containing less than 1% cocoa butter, resulting in +20% increased volume and a less dense product with better stability of the shape during baking compared to traditional cocoa powder. With its 100% clean label and natural promise, this low-fat cacao powder is made from sustainably sourced finest quality West African beans.
The minimal fat content reduces the risk of fat bloom and is an ideal option for low-calorie applications and products such as macarons, croissants, mousses, spreads, and meringues, which require more aeration.
