Gelatinized Premium Maca

gelatinzied premium maca powder

Our Gelatinized Premium Maca  is made using a unique process. Instead of being sundried after harvest, the fresh roots are immediately cleaned, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried to produce a powder, which is then gelatinized to dissolve most starch content. This careful and quick handling preserves more vital nutrients of the Maca roots and makes for a significantly more potent product. Gelatinized Premium Maca is easier to digest than a Raw Maca powder making it suitable for the majority of people. It takes about 4 kg of Raw Maca roots to produce 1 Kg of Gelatinized Maca powder, making it more concentrated than Raw Maca. Our Premium Maca powder contains a combination of about 30% Red, 40% Yellow and 30% Black Maca roots. Given the special handling and combination of Maca colors, Premium Maca Powder is in our opinion the best all-purpose Maca for both Men and Women.

The 2 major advantages of using Gelatinized Maca are:gleatinized premium maca powder and capsules

  • Easier digestion - because the starch is mostly dissolved Gelatinized Maca is easier on the stomach
  • More concentrated nutrients - the absence of starch means that gram for gram, Gelatinized Maca is more concentrated than Raw Maca powders

The 2 major disadvantages of using Gelatinized Maca are:

  • Loss of enzymes - high heat destroys all enzymes, which limits the full absorption of Maca powder
  • Loss of glucosinolates - high heat alters these sensitive hormone balancing nutrients making them less effective

Is Gelatinized Maca right for you?

If you have a generally sensitive stomach or any other issue with digestion, then Gelatinized Maca is the best choice you can make.   The reason is simple.  While Raw Maca can cause temporary symptoms like bloating, gas or upset stomach (in about 5% of people), the gelatinized powder simply will not do so.  If you don't have any digestive concerns we recommend going with one of our Raw Maca powders.
