Dutched means Dutch-Process. It’s also known as European style or alkalised cocoa. Cacao is naturally acidic, roasted beans that are ground up will have an average acidity of around 5-6. Pure water has a pH of very close to 7, solutions with a pH greater than 7 are said to be alkaline. 
Dutched cocoa has been washed in a potassium solution that neutralises its acidity. It also gives cocoa a much darker colour and a smoother, mellower flavour. Most cocoa intended for use in drinking chocolates and baking is Dutch Process in Europe, many recipes will require this alkaline ingredient, however if using an American recipe please be aware that they generally refer to natural or acidic cocoa.
