How Our Gelatinized Black Maca Powder Is Different

Gelatinization is a specialized process in which maca roots are heated and put under pressure in order to “explode” starch molecules. This renders the resulting maca powder easier to digest. As the process only uses water and heat, it does not add any type of “gelatin” to the final powder. There are several key aspects that set gelatinized maca apart:

  • Gelatinized maca is the easiest maca to digest and best for anyone with a sensitive stomach
  • A special process heats the roots is to remove the starch content, making black gelatinized maca powder more concentrated than its raw counterpart (you may need to take less to get similar benefits)
  • Some nutrients including active metabolites are activated and amplified due to the heat and pressure used in making gelatinized maca
  • The main disadvantage to taking maca root in gelatinized form is that some nutrients including vitamin C and all enzymes are destroyed due to the heat used in processing
  • Our 2.2 lb (1 kg) foil lined, double sealed, food grade pouch contains 111 individual servings at 3 t (9g) each. That is enough to last one person nearly 4 months. Note that we also sell black gelatinized maca powder in 1 lb (50 servings) and 8 oz (25 serving) packages.

  2. Muscle building. Gelatinized black maca is a customer favorite for increasing muscle mass and strength.
  3. Endurance. We’ve also had reports from both male and female athletes that gelatinized black maca powder supports endurance in both training and events.
  4. Improved Mood. A study from 2016 from an esteemed and larger group of international researchers found that black maca improved mood as well as overall “quality of life.”
  5. Focus and memory. Some students rave about black maca’s ability to support their focus and concentration, which can lead to higher performance.

Read the following article to see all of black maca’s benefits and the research that supports them. Please note maca is a food and that results may vary from person to person.

Is Geltanized Black Maca Powder A Better Choice Than Capsules?

This is an excellent question and the answer really depends on the individual taking maca root.

If you enjoy the taste of maca powder (gelatinized black maca has a nutty, caramel-like taste) then the powder is a better choice for you. It is also significantly less expensive than maca capsules per serving. You can either add it to smoothies or other dishes. We do have an extensive collection of maca recipes for you to enjoy.

If, on the other hand, you don’t enjoy the taste of maca, the gelatinized black maca capsules will be a better choice for you. While they do cost more, they certainly do make taking maca easier. You will only need water (or another beverage of your choice) to take them and you can be assured you are taking a consistent amount as the quantity of powder within each capsule is standardized.

If you’re on the fence between these two, we’d suggest that you at least give the powder a try first. Remember we do sell it in an 8 oz. bag. That will be enough for you to get a sense of how you like it.
