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)
Several researchers have studied this type of 3 Color Maca blend and found that:
- Maca stimulates improved athletic performance, including stamina and strength
- Maca supports concentration, memory and overall brain function
- Maca is nutrient dense with 60% carbohydrates, 12 crucial minerals, 10 vitamins, over 40 fatty and amino acids and 4 unique glucosinolates – a true superfood.
- Maca has been used for over 2000 years as a nutritionally dense food to promote endurance, vitality, fertility and libido in populations living at very high elevations.

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.
Used the raw maca (premium) before, this time the gelatinized....could be me,but this feels a bit stronger,so I use it on non-gym days by itself. On gym days I use other supplements,and like to keep them separate. Not a huge difference with digestion.... I also use ashwaganda for thyroid issues,so I try to use that at different times. I usually mix in a cup of cashew milk with stevia tumeric,and vanilla...... P.S. Nice quality family buisness !
First time I've tried this product with this company. I'm very pleased with the freshness of the product, and it was shipped out promptly.
I love the Maca Powder from The Maca Team. I appreciate that it is gelatinized, I have had no stomach issues. I got the Premium Maca Root Powder this time. I can't say that I notice a difference in the way that I feel, the taste is different than the Yellow gelatinized. I personally like the taste and how the yellow made me feel better- but it is always worth changing things up from time to time to see how something else works.
I don't doubt the quality of this product, however a word of caution is in order for anyone (like me) with autoimmune thyroid conditions where iodine is a big no-no. The iodine content was enough to send me into a severe tailspin for 3+ weeks and counting. Very scary and dangerous.
I would not have thought to look for iodine in a root vegetable, and did indeed miss seeing it on the nutritional label until it was too late.
While in most cases maca may be a positive addition, a small word of warning somewhere about this issue would be helpful for those of us who are foggy-brained.
Me and my boyfriend both notice more energy when taking this maca! My menstrual cycle was out of wack and after 2 months of using this product it has regulated itself. I highly recommend this product.
Good quality maca. Nice packaging too. I like all three blended together.
I can hardly believe what a difference this Maca has done for me. I notice a boost in energy and concentration I haven't been able to find with other supplements. I have tried other brands of Maca, but this is the first that I could digest without difficulty in the dosages I find I need to feel the effects.
Strong,clean and effective maca is the best way to consume it and the maca team has proven this. Taste is very good too !! I recommend everyone to use this maca.
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 usually get the gelatinized red maca and really enjoyed it. Then I saw you had Premium maca which is a blend of ask 3 types so I purchased this one thinking it would be even better. I honestly only see "yellow" maca and not anything else. When it first shipped in I had some left over Red maca and decided to pour the rest into the new package and did see a variation in color. However by itself, I didn't even see a brown shade for the "black" maca. So I'm not sure I will be reordering this premium. I also didn't notice a difference in the way it made me feel....so I will stick to my favorite red maca. Overall the quality and price is good.
Good quality maca. The raw maca upset my stomach, so I switched to the gelatinized. I've had no problems with it.
I have been taking Maca for several months buying from health food stores locally. Because of noticeable results, I decided to look for Maca on the internet for a better price. I found this company and my first impression was the well designed and informative website. I ordered Raw Black Maca and Premium Gelatinized Maca and they both seem like quality products.
Good packaging, and fair prices. I will continue to order from this company
I have taken Maca off and on for about ten years and can say that the Organic Gelatinized Premium Maca Root Powder is the best I have taken so far. Even if I miss a day or two, a few hours after I take it I can feel the difference! I like the fact that it is a combination of yellow, black and red Maca. Also, the unique processing of the Premium Gelatinized Maca seems to make a big difference. I am very pleased with this product in the way it is processed, packaged and of course, the performance and effects!
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!!!
I can tell a great difference in my uh libido since taking this product. I uh am 65 years young and taken pretty goof care of myself with eating healthy and taking good care of my skin. But uh Yeah . . . I've notice a HUGE difference__
Works great for myself as it did appear to eliminate the gas that other maca products seemed to give me. This has a great flavor and arrived in a timely fashion.
Ordered this powder, received the capsules instead and when I informed them I was sent this on top of the capsules for free! Super friendly customer service and I feel like the maca has made my days better!
I love it. Absolutely love this product. Use it everyday. In fact I'm due for a new order.
This product really works, helps me deal with everyday tasks. I feel more focused, bright and better controlling situation.
