What is cocoa powder?

Cocoa solids  are the low-fat component of chocolate. When sold as an end product, it may also be called  cocoa powdercocoa, and  cacao.

The separation of the two components may be accomplished by a press, or by the Broma process. The resulting powder, sold as natural cocoa powder, is more reddish than the traditional "chocolate" color, and relatively low in pH, causing a sour or acidic taste.
