What is Bulletproof Upgraded Cacao butter?
Bulletproof Cocoa Butter is raw cocoa butter from the best cocoa beans, carefully stored and processed.
By mixing the cocoa butter with raw cocoa powder you can make your own chocolate or chocolate milk. You can make it as sweet as you like by adding raw honey or eritrytol to it to taste.
Bulletproof starts with rare, wild, hand-harvested South American cacao beans from a single small region at high elevation with rich volcanic soil. High elevations reduce the amount of mold in the environment. The trees are watered with pollution-free mountain stream water. Bulletproof selected a heritage cacao species in the Arriba family from decades-old trees, some as old as 75 years. At no time do we use aggregators or wholesalers so there is no chance of low-quality hybrid species of cacao entering the supply chain. Experienced craftsmen harvest the ripe cacao pods and bring them to the nearby, dedicated processing facility.
How is Bulletproof Upgraded Cacao butter processed?
Unfermented chocolate is not edible, so Bulletproof ferments the chocolate. The high altitude state of the art closed facility and single-source beans allow a short fermentation process with far less exposure to the types of toxic mold found in more humid African chocolate processing methods.
Upgraded Chocolate processing keeps 86% more beneficial compounds.
By gently harvesting the pods, keeping them raw, and using artisan equipment to crush the beans, Upgraded Cacao Butter retains the antioxidant quality of chocolate all the way from the wilderness to your mouth. The quality and flavor of chocolate is impacted by the fermentation and processing methods. Normally, there is very little control over what bacteria ferment the cocoa, which often produces unwanted flavors and bad batches. Upgraded Cacao Butter avoids this problem by using a dedicated, closed, single-source facility at high altitude in South America with a short fermentation process. There are simply fewer opportunities for the bad molds to enter the process. We store the beans in a climate-controlled facility.
The way cocoa beans are stored has a large impact on the different kinds of mold and fungi present on the beans. Improper storage, which is common in commodity beans, increases fungi levels.
