Macalat begins with a gold standard 70% organic dark couverture chocolate recipe, stone-ground, and artfully tempered. The Cacao is Single Origin Peruvian. Heirloom Peruvian Cacao is an excellent foundation to create an authentic, decadent, sugar-free, and bitter free dark chocolate.
Macalat is formulated with ingredients and protocols that eliminate the very need for sugar without sacrificing taste by the inclusion of phytonutrient dense superfoods to balance, enhance, and sweeten. There are unrecognized synergies of these newfound ingredients that bring out the natural sweet flavor and a natural energy boost.
Lucuma and Maca, also from Peru, enhance sweet caramel and malt flavor notes. Lucuma is known as, “Inca Gold” in Peru is highly revered. Lucuma marries with Cacao similar to the way dairy is used in milk chocolate to mitigate astringency. Maca deepens the Malt tone. Vanilla Bean, Cinnamon, and Monk Fruit support Cacao’s floral aromas. Andes Pink Salt strikes a tantalizing chord of toffee.
Macalat Craft Chocolate is a stone-ground for 60 hours for a velvety smooth fusion. The rich flavors and phytonutrients release and the shear of the stone wheels drive off the more volatile bitter notes. This is called “couching” or “air washing”. In this Cauldron of refining and equilibrating, alchemy happens. The outcome is an incredibly smooth sugarless organic dark chocolate with the rich flavor of Peruvian Cacao and the full potency of bio-nutrients totally available.
The finishing touch is a bit of “pixie” dust that is an organic mushroom Mycelium from the stem of select mushrooms. This mushroom mycelium magically mitigates the last bit of bitter in the finish as Macalat melts on your palate, revealing and releasing a symphony of Peruvian chocolate flavor in all its splendor and goodness.
