Our Gelatinized Premium Heritiage Harvest Maca powder is made from about 40% Yellow, 30% Red and 30% Black Maca roots. We call it “Heritage Harvest” because the 3 color blend is the way that people in the Andes have traditionally eaten Maca. What makes this Maca “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, Maca roots are fresh processed immediately after harvest. After coming out of the ground they are cleaned in a citrus solution, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried. This special processing leaves more glucosinolates in the final product.
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. Gelatinized Premium Heritage Harvest Maca:
- Comes from a modern approach to processing Maca developed in the past 25 years
- Is fresh Processed - Maca roots are dried in dehydrators immediately after harvest
- Has higher glucosinolate content - nutrients which may help prevent cancer
- Is Much stronger tasting - has a more noticeable Maca flavor with more spiciness
- Is limited in supply since it must be produced from fresh roots during annual harvest (June-August)

Best quality maca I have found so far, period.
My husband and I have used this product on and off for several years. I always ask myself why we stop because the benefits are great. The renewed energy and increased libido are only two of the positive results. We just get careless about taking it with us when we travel. Our bad. Need to make it a staple and this last time we both agree that it's a must.
This was the 4th time I've ordered from Maca Team. And as usualy I'm not disappointed .
Unfortunately this time I had to pay HST Ontario tax. It was additional 22 CAD.
I hope in the future the company will have some kind of discounts for Canadian customers to equalize the costs.
Maca from Maca Team works really, enchances your endurance, boosts up your energy and motivation levels and balances out your mood in a soft yet very efficient way
I am only starting my fourth week on the maca but I'm feeling really good. I have been taking hormones and this is the time when I would need to go back to the doctor but so far I've been able to hold off. I am not having hot flashes or night sweats and my energy seems pretty good. That's why I ordered this and it seems to be working. If I can stop taking hormones, I will be extremely happy. I also love that this is a small family owned business!!!
This product really works, helps me deal with everyday tasks. I feel more focused, bright and better controlling situation.
