Health and Nutrition Benefits of Cocoa Powder 

Cocoa is thought to have first been used by the Maya civilization of Central America.
It was introduced to Europe by Spanish conquerors in the 16th century and quickly became popular as a health-promoting medicine.
Cocoa powder is made by crushing cocoa beans and removing the fat or cocoa butter.
Today, cocoa is most famous for its role in chocolate production. However, modern research has revealed that it does indeed contain important compounds that can benefit your health.
Here are some health and nutrition benefits of cocoa powder.

1. Rich In Polyphenol That Provide Several Health Benefits

Cocoa is rich in polyphenols, which have significant health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved cholesterol levels. However, processing cocoa into chocolate or other products can substantially decrease the polyphenol content. Spectra Cocoa Powder has 100% alkalized cocoa.

2. May Reduce High Blood Pressure by Improving Nitric Oxide Levels

Studies reveal that cocoa is rich in flavanols, which lower blood pressure by improving nitric oxide levels and blood vessel function. Cocoa containing between 30 –1,218 mg of flavanols can reduce blood pressure by an average of 2 mmHg.

3. May Lower Your Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke

Cocoa can improve blood flow and reduce cholesterol. Eating up to one serving of chocolate per day may reduce your risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke.

4. Polyphenols Improve Blood Flow to Your Brain and Brain Function

Flavanols in cocoa can support neuron production, brain function and improve blood flow reducing blood clot and supply to brain tissue. They may have a role in preventing age-related brain degeneration, such as in Alzheimer’s disease, but more research is needed.

5. May Have Cancer-Protective Properties

flavanols in cocoa have been shown to have promising anti-cancer properties in est-tube and animal studies, but data from human trials is lacking.


The Bottom Line

Cocoa has captivated the world for thousands of years and is a big part of modern cuisine in the form of chocolate.

Health benefits of cocoa include decreased inflammation, improved heart and brain health, blood sugar and weight control and healthy teeth and skin.

It’s nutritious and easy to add to your diet in creative ways. However, make sure to use non-alkalized cocoa powder or dark chocolate containing more than 70% cocoa if you want to maximize health benefits.

Remember that chocolate still contains significant quantities of sugar and fats, so if you’re going to use it, stick to reasonable portion sizes and combine it with a healthy balanced diet.

Finally Spectra Industries Cocoa Powder is 100% pure Alkalized Cocoa Powder without sugar which can be taken hot or cold and also used in different dairy mixtures like chocolates, cakes, milkshakes and a lot more.

We are the “home of functional foods”.



Everything needs a starting point—that middle of the road point to build everything around.

For bakers, that point is usually flour. And for most, it’s usually all purpose flour. I mean, it’s kind of in the name. But what makes it all purposeful?

What’s it made of?

It is milled from hard red wheat or a blend of hard and soft wheats, typically at a 80:20 ratio. The process looks something like this:

  • Wheat grains are milled to separate the endosperm from the bran and form all-purpose unbleached flour.
  • At the end of the millstream, the flour can be bleached using bleaching-maturing agents to form bleached all-purpose flour.
  • Fortification with vitamins (e.g. thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid) and minerals (iron, calcium) forms bleached fortified flour. Unbleached and unenriched options are also available.

The all purpose flour

The end result is a flour suitable for all types of baked goods such as bread, biscuits, pizza, cookies, muffins. You can use 100% for denser cakes, or softer breads. It can also be combined with other types of flour such as durum or whole wheat flour.

Flour that is freshly milled or ‘green’ does not make doughs and bread with proper rheology and texture. So, there’s the need for aging or bleaching. This step is beneficial in terms of:

  • Oxidizing the sulfhydryl groups of the protein, thus improving dough elasticity
  • Whitening the flour
  • Improving the baking characteristics

Sobake is made from soy flour with 3% fat and about 48-52% protein, which can be used by bakeries and confectionery shops. It is added to wheat Flour to increase yield.

Sobake has a very high protein content and it extends the product shelf life of your baked products.

Sobake produces heart-healthy breads and other baked and fried products. Other benefits are as follows:

It improves the yield of bread and other pastries.
It serves as substitute to milk.
It helps the weight of bread and other pastries.                                                                                                          It enhances fluffiness of bread and other pastries.


White Bread and Rolls: Use at least 2% or 1 kg of Sobake to q 50kg of wheat flour. However, it will take additional 1 .51trs of water to the existing quantity of water usage. It forms hydroperoxides from linoleic acid in shortening. This reacts with gluten, increasing its strength and the volume of the bakéd bread. As mentioned earlier, presence of SOBAKE increases absorption by adding 1.5-2.0kg of water per 1 .0kg of soy flour, and improves crumb body, resilience énd crust colour.

Doughnuts: Add 4-10% SOBAKE (soy flour) which wii,l improve water retention (and decreases fat absorption) during frying. Add 2 — 5kg of SOBAKE to 50kg of wheat flour.

Pastries: Add 4 — 10% and this will improve machining, freshness and yield i.e. 2kg to 5kg of SOBAKE in 50kg of wheat flour. Add water as desired but not more than the weight of SOBAKE.
