Gelatinized Tri-Color Maca Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, GMO-Free, Vegan and Gluten Free

Overviewgelatinized tri-color maca powder serving suggestion

Our gelatinized tri-color maca powder is made from a mix of all 3 colors of maca roots: black, red and yellow. This blend is the traditional way of consuming maca as maca roots were not separated by color until the 1990s. With a blend of about 40% yellow, 30% red and 30% black maca roots, taking gelatinized tri-color maca powder is a great way to get benefits of all 3 colors at very good price.

What Makes This Maca Powder Unique?

There are several things that make gelatinized tri-color maca root powder stand out from the crowd. First, most maca powders on the market contain only one color of maca root. This powder, on the other hand, is a blend of all three. What that means is that you get some of the benefits of each color of maca in one convenient package. Second, this tri-color maca powder is less expensive than others. That’s because there is less labor and other costs involved in separating the maca by color in order to produce it. Gelatinized tri-color maca is for that reason the best value on the market. Finally, this is the type of maca that people have been using successfully for 1000s of years.

What Is Gelatinization?

You’ll notice that we sell tri-color maca products in both raw and gelatinized form. Gelatinized tri-color maca has undergone a special process called “gelatinization.” In this process maca roots are heated for a short period of time in special ovens designed to reduce the starch content of maca. The result is a maca powder that is easier to digest because of the absence of the starch. Sometimes people wonder if “gelatin” is used during this process. It is not. Actually, nothing is added to the maca roots during the gelatinization process. That makes the final product, like all of our other products suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike.

A couple of points about gelatinized tri-color maca:gelatinized tri-color maca powder from the maca team

  • Gelatinized maca is the easiest maca to digest and best for anyone with a sensitive stomach
  • A special process heats the roots is to remove the starch content, making gelatinized maca more concentrated than raw maca (you may need to take less)
  • Some nutrients including active metabolites are activated and amplified due to the heat and pressure used in making gelatinized maca

Who Is Gelatinized Tri-Color Maca Best For?
