    Details:

    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.

    1. Fresh and Delicious

      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. on 3rd Sep 2017

    2. Great product.

      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. on 2nd Jun 2017

    3. Wish I had noticed the iodine content before ordering

      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.

    4. Love it!

      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. on 15th Nov 2016

    5. Best maca I've ever had !!!!

      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. on 1st Oct 2016

    6. Premium vs. Red

      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. on 27th Aug 2016

    7. Excellent

      Good quality maca. The raw maca upset my stomach, so I switched to the gelatinized. I've had no problems with it. on 10th Jun 2016

    8. GREAT PRODUCT

      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
      on 5th Jun 2016

    9. Works Well

      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. on 26th Dec 2015
