Gelatinized Tri-Color Maca Overview
Gelatinized Tri-Color Maca Further Info
Our pre-cooked tri-color maca powder products are made from about 40% yellow, 30% red and 30% black maca roots. We call it “Heritage Harvest” because the 3-color triple blend is the way that people in the Andes have traditionally eaten Maca. After select Maca roots are harvested, they are dried in the mountain sun for 10-40 days and then “gelatinized.” 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 our 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 our 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.
Several research studies about this type of gelatinized tri-color maca have found that:
