Video of mixing up a big batch of Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Chow

I decided to take a video of mixing up a batch of Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Chow. The mixing device was sparkling clean before I dumped the powder into it, that powder is messy stuff man. For this video I let off the cover that normally keeps the dust down a bit. I will sometimes get requests for custom blends of Keto Chow (less salt, less fiber, etc…) that I used to be able to accommodate when I was mixing each batch individually, measuring out each individual ingredient as I show in my mixing video. That approach works fine for 1-8 weeks at a time but it doesn’t scale very well (yesterday I did 34 weeks of just Vanilla, 5 of those being destined for day pouches in addition to that many more of other flavors). So now I measure out the minerals into small bags that match a 10lb bag of Dymatize; a bag of minerals for each batch. I do a quick pre-mix of the minerals before adding them to the mixer because otherwise the calcium/magnesium citrates tend to clump. For the Peanut Butter flavor I also add the peanut flour and then start the mixer. You can see why I’m not able to reduce a single ingredient for 1 week pack.

Because of the peanut flour, every time I do the Chocolate Peanut butter flavor I have to spend 15 minutes or so cleaning everything (bins, scale, scoops) because even though my bags say “may contain peanuts” in the allergy section, I don’t want anybody to get sick.

In completely unrelated news I decided I should set up some social media accounts so there’s now one for “the” Facebook and the tweeter Twitter.

      A horizontal mixer – took me months to find one that would work.

          It’s a commercial grade one, costs $675 for all the pieces.

    Wow, that is quite a process! Thanks for sharing that. Was wondering, do you have any inclination to sell the bags of minerals for the 10lb of Dymatize? That would be a huge space savings for DIY folks. I’m referring to all the containers that you have to store for the minerals.

      Well, I could – you would need a way to mix up 10lbs at a time though, it requires a container that’s at least 6 gallons. Didn’t think there was much demand for that.
