Gelatinized 3 Color Maca - Premium

Sort by:

Our Gelatinized Premium Heritiage Harvest Maca powder...

...is made from about 40% Yellow, 30% Red and 30% Black Maca roots. We call it “Heritage Harvest” because the 3 color blend is the way that people in the Andes have traditionally eaten Maca.   What makes this Maca “premium” is the way in which it is processed. g-200p-maca-powder-capsules.jpgInstead of being sundried, Maca roots are fresh processed immediately after harvest. After coming out of the ground they are cleaned in a citrus solution, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried.  This special processing leaves more glucosinolates in the final product.

Note: this is the exact same product as our old Gelatinized Premium Maca Powder (the one with the purple label)

 Gelatinization is a process in which Maca is heated to high temperatures (160F / 70C). The heat causes the starch molecules in Maca to irreversibly dissolve and the result is a powder that has had some of its nutrients compromised but is easier to digest than raw Maca. It’s important to note that nothing is added to Maca during the gelatinization process.

 The advantages of using Gelatinized Maca are:

  • Easier digestion - because the starch is removed
  • More concentrated nutrients - the absence of starch means that gram for gram, Gelatinized Maca is more concentrated than Raw Maca

 The disadvantage of using Gelatinized Maca is:

  • Loss of some nutrients including enzymes and Vitamin C due to the heat used in gelatinization

Is Gelatinized Maca right for you?

 If you have a sensitive stomach or any other issue with digestion, then Gelatinized Maca is the best choice for you.   The reason is simple.  While Raw Maca can cause temporary symptoms like bloating, gas or upset stomach (in about 5% of people), Gelatinized Maca simply will not do so.  Our customers report similar benefits from Gelatinized and Raw Maca powders, so if you are unsure, Gelatinized Maca may be a better choice for you.
