New: The Morning Motivator a.k.a. Maca Coffee

Gelatinized Organic Maca - Premium

Our Gelatinized Premium Maca products are made from Maca roots that are dried in low temperature dehydrators immediately after harvest.  This modern approach to processing Maca was developed to help standardize many nutrient levels and maximize glucosinolate content (nutrients that may be associated with anti-cancer properties).  Gelatinized Premium Maca powders have a stronger and spicier flavor.   They also cost more because of increased labor and equipment costs to produce them.  Read more about Sundried vs. Premium Maca here.

Gelatinized Maca is the best type of Maca for anyone with a sensitive digestive system.  In the gelatinization process Maca roots are boiled and pressurized to dissolve most starch content.  The resulting Gelatinized Maca powder is easier to digest than Raw Maca powders.
