Current stock: 0




Our Gelatanized Maca delivers all the benefits of raw maca, like increased stamina and energy, an enhanced immune system, reduction of chronic fatigue, and complete endocrine system support, in a highly digestible form. We source our Maca from the mountainous plateaus of the Peruvian Andes, where natives have used the root medicinally and in food preparation for more than 500 years.


What is Gelatinized Maca powder and how does it compare to Raw Maca?


To produce our Gelatanized Maca, the roots are sun dried, boiled and then pressurized in order to remove starch content. Due to the lack of starch, it can be easier to digest than raw maca. It’s an ideal choice for anyone with a sensitive stomach. It also has a higher concentration of nutrients, including activated nutrients from the heating process such as secondary metabolites and minerals.

The History of the Peruvian Super Root


Since the times before the Incas, natives of the Peruvian and Bolivian highlands have known the secrets of the sacred maca root. Warriors consumed maca root before battle to give themselves increased energy and stamina, and to sustain themselves on long journeys. Maca root has been used as a powerful treatment for low libido and infertility in the Andean culture for more than 500 years. The Spaniards valued the medicinal qualities of maca root so much that they used it as currency.


Maca root powder is still a treasured food and medicinal staple in the harsh climate of the Andes, where it grows at elevations of 11,000 to 14,000 feet. This unassuming root is a member of the cruciferous family, resembling a radish with low-growing leaves that produce off-white flowers.


How to Use Our Gelatanized Maca

Today, athletes, vegans and vegetarians, outdoor adventurers, and culinary professionals enjoy our Gelatanized Maca. It has a sweet flavor and is considered a delicacy when added to desserts like puddings and chocolate, or to teas. When roasted, maca root is sweeter than cacao and has hints of butterscotch. Add it to your smoothies and yogurt, use in baked goods, homemade energy bars, or spoon into coffee and tea.
