Powders in Practice
For a world of applications
Gerkens® cocoa powders are reassuringly predictable and high in quality, guaranteeing your end products a delicious taste and colour – everywhere in the world.
Our powders can be used for a range of great tasting applications.
A great cocoa taste in dairy applications
For consistent performance across desserts and puddings, the Gerkens® brand offers the industry’s smoothest finely ground powders which work in dairy applications, time and time again. This consistency is made possible due to tight microbiological controls. In addition, analysis of the powder’s performance on your product lines by our technical teams means you can have confidence in the shelf-life of your dairy products.
Delicious ice cream, with Gerkens® Dutch dark
For a uniquely summery sensation, Gerkens® powders combine the broadest spectrum with the most consistent experience for a delicious chocolaty ice cream. Based on a blend of the world’s best beans, our high-fat Dutch dark powders, for example, result in a full-bodied, indulgent ice cream, in a colour that we can tailor for the preferences of your consumers.
