Comax Flavors, combating the rising price of cocoa and supply concerns for the natural product, has launched a line of cocoa extenders and replacers. The flavors can adapt to various types and percentages of cocoa and are available in liquid and powdered and natural and artificial forms. The flavors can replace 10 parts to 75 parts dutched cocoa in the finished product with one part Comax flavor. The results, according to the company, range from rich chocolate taste with deep, complex notes to a light caramelic-type cocoa flavor.
