Gelatinized Red Maca

gelatinized red maca powder

Our Gelatinized Red Maca contains Maca powder made from 100% Red Maca roots.  It is a 4:1 product, meaning that it takes 4 kg Raw Maca to produce 1 kg Gelatinized Maca  The process of gelatinization eliminates all starch content  After harvest, sundrying and cleaning the roots are heated to temperatures above 70 C (160 F).  The heat causes the starch molecules to irreversibly dissolve.  The result is a powder that has had some of its nutrients compromised through heating but is easier to digest than raw Maca.

The 2 major advantages of using Gelatinized Maca are:gelatinized-red-maca-powder-capsules.jpg

  • Easier digestion - because the starch is removed 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. 

Based on scientific research and our experience we recommend Red Maca for:

  • For men looking to use Maca for prostate support
  • For women's fertility and libido (men should try Black Maca)
  • For bone density - most important for women and children
  • For everyone wanting to experience the highest antioxidant and nutrient levels of all Maca powders
  • For everyone just starting with Maca (including children) due to the sweeter, more pleasant taste
