Gelatinized Red Maca Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO, Vegan, Fresh and Potentred gelatinized maca powder serving idea

Our Gelatinized Red Maca Root Powder is made from 100% red maca roots that are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. These roots come from an organic farming cooperative in and around Junin, Peru. We work only with producers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level. The cooperative of farmers is committed both to organic farming and to producing only the highest quality maca products anywhere.

How is gelatinized red maca powder different than raw red maca powder?

The main difference between these two kinds of maca powder is that gelatinized maca is pre-cooked, while raw maca is not. In the gelatinization process, red maca roots are heated to above 160 F / 71 C in order to dissolve the starch content within the roots. This process makes the resulting maca powder easier to assimilate. Some of the key points of red gelatinized maca are:

  • Gelatinized maca is the easiest maca to digest and the most suitable for anyone with a sensitive stomach.
  • The gelatinization process concentrates some of maca’s nutrients so in some cases you may need to take a bit less than with raw maca for similar results.
  • Vitamin C content and enzymes are heat sensitive and are lost in the gelatinization process.
  • No other ingredients are added during gelatinization. The process has absolutely nothing to do with “gelatin” and red gelatinized maca powder is 100% vegan.
  • Some nutrients including active metabolites are activated and amplified due to the heat and pressure used in making gelatinized red maca.

Who is gelatinized red maca indicated for?

Our Gelatinized Red Maca Powder is higher in phytonutrients than our other maca products, and has a very positive effect on hormone health and balance. Some research has also indicated that red maca in general has an exceptionally positive effect on:

  • women's fertility
  • hormone balance
  • prostate health
  • energy
  • mood
  • concentration and focus

Please note that results may vary from person to person.

Is gelatinized red maca powder better than gelatinized red maca capsules?

This is a good question. Our capsules contain 100% pure maca powders so, with the exception of the vegetable cellulose that comprises the capsule itself, they are identical to our powders. That means that in terms of nutrition there is not difference. When it comes to other factors there are a few differences. First, maca powder is more economical than maca capsules. It requires specialized machinery and more labor to create and package maca capsules. This increases the cost. Gelatinized red maca powder is about 20% less expensive than the capsules for that reason. Second, maca powder is suitable and easy to mix into smoothies or other recipes, On the other hand capsules are certainly more convenient than powders. It is quicker to take them and easier to get a precise serving size daily. Capsules also disguise the taste of maca powder for those who don’t like it. That said, gelatinized red maca powder has a pleasant caramel-like flavor that many people do enjoy.gelatinized red maca powder from the maca team

We’re often asked which of the two we recommend most and to that question we like to respond that whichever format will encourage you to take maca more consistently is the one that would be best for you.

Why buy from The Maca Team?

Unlike other larger brands, The Maca Team is completely focused on maca root products. This allows us to put all our resources into ensuring that our customers receive the highest quality and most effective maca products anywhere. Our dedication starts at the level of the farms we use. We work with a cooperative of farmers who grow maca in the traditional way. They care for the land at a deep level and regenerate it over the course of 10 plus years once maca has been harvested on it. When maca roots are harvested we select the top 10% of grade A roots. These roots are then processed carefully and the resulting maca powder or chips are sent to us immediately. Even though maca has a 3-year shelf life, we emphasize getting as fresh as maca as possible into our customers’ hands. Whenever you purchase a product from The Maca Team you can be sure that it is:

  • Organically grown
  • Non-GMO
