Maca Powder (Gelatinized)


Our organic gelatinized maca powder is made from a combination of yellow, red, and black maca root. Gelatinization is an extrusion process that breaks down the starch molecules in the maca root, thus concentrating the active ingredients, and promoting easier digestion and enhanced bioavailability. It is heated under pressure to remove the starches, providing a higher concentration of nutritional content. Before the starch is removed, our maca roots are meticulously harvested, dried, and milled at low temperatures to preserve the vital nutrients. Maca is a pure and potent super root with a pleasantly nutty and malty flavor that makes it a delicious addition to smoothies, sweets, desserts, and anything that contains chocolate.

Suggested use of Gelatinized Maca Powder: 1-4 teaspoons per day, add to smoothies, juices, energy balls, raw food recipes, or make into a hot drink.
