28 May 2018 --- Prova has launched a new range of cocoa extracts and flavors, which, according to Ursula Kingsbury, Prova’s Vice President, delivers a high impact and authentic chocolate taste. The variety of extracts are eight times stronger than cocoa powder and with a longer shelf-life, the company reports.

PROCAO ingredients are produced at Prova’s vertically integrated production site that employs unique, high-yield technologies. Kingsbury explains that Prova processes 2,000 tons of cocoa annually, assuring steady supplies that customers can count on. 

She states: “Our PROCAO line of Cocoa Extracts and Flavors are supported by Prova’s experienced application specialists who are ready to work side by side with customers from the early stages of product development until products are ready for market.”

Kingsbury also emphasizes that PROCAO Cocoa Extracts and Flavors are suited to both non-fat and full-fat applications. She said that compared to cocoa powder, they offer a longer shelf-life – up to two years. Kingsbury notes that PROCAO Cocoa Extracts and Flavors demonstrate a less powdery mouthfeel and allow for easier extrusion and whipping. 

She concludes: “Formulators can count on their improved viscosity and lower water activity that results in improved freshness and the ability to mask off-notes. In addition to their high impact, authentic chocolate taste, our wide and versatile selection of PROCAO Cocoa Extracts, Natural Cocoa Flavors and Natural Cocoa Flavors with Other Natural Flavors have cost-in-use benefits. Our Cocoa Extracts are another example of our commitment to provide enhanced and extended cocoa and chocolate tastes in a wide range of bakery, confectionery, cereal, dairy, nutritional and beverage products.”
