Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a vegetable native to the high, harsh climate of the Andes Mountains in Peru. For over 2000 years maca has been an important traditional food and medicinal herb to those in its growing region. Maca root powder is high in protein, dietary fiber, many important minerals, and amino acids (containing 19 different amino acids).
We offer gelatinized maca powder, which has been heat-treated to remove the starch for easier digestion and is not considered raw.
