Maca Root Powder - Descriptions:

Popularly known as “Peruvian ginseng”, Maca powder is a biennial crop that has been around for over 3000 years. Our Maca powder Gelatinized supplement is sourced from the natural origin in the high altitudes of Peru. As a result of its potency, the Incas and ancient Peruvians utilized it as a currency for trade and a powerful food supplement to boost strength, virility, and endurance.

Maca comes from the same family as radish or turnip and our product is sourced from its naturally occurring habitat at altitudes of 8,000 to 14,500 feet.

It is often used as tea, spice, and supplement for processing other foods and has a rather strong earthy taste with a butterscotch accent. The Maca plant itself is available in different colors ranging from yellow, red-purple, and even black and can be prepared as raw Maca powder, Maca powder, or gelatinized Maca powder.

It is always advisable to use Maca powder as it offers a less harsh food source for your digestive system. We always recommend that you try using Maca powder as an additive to your smoothie, milk, chocolate, and even in your favorite dessert recipes.
