Gelatinized Yellow Maca Overview

Gelatinized Yellow Maca Further Info

Our gelatinized yellow maca products are made from 100% organic, Yellow Maca roots. After these 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 Gelatinized Yellow Maca are:

  • Easier digestion - because the starch is far lower than that of raw maca
  • 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 the gelatinization process.

 Is Gelatinized Yellow Maca right for you?

If you have a sensitive stomach or any other issue with digestion, then this Gelatinized Yellow Maca is the best choice for you. The reason is simple. While Raw Maca has been known to 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.
