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)

Enjoy the day!
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 !
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.
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 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☺️
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.
