Gelatinized Sundried Yellow Maca Root Chips, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, GMO-Free, Vegan and Raw 1 lb (454g)

1 lb = 50 Servings @ 3t (9g) daily.  

Our Gelatinized Yellow Maca Root Chips are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. They 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.  Gelatinized Yellow Maca is made from Yellow Maca roots, which make up about 60% off the annual harvest in Peru.  These roots are pre-cooked to remove starch content and ease digestion

Details:

 

Our Maca Root Chips are the closest to whole Maca roots that can legally be exported from Peru. That’s because Maca is considered a “heritage product” of Peru and the Peruvian government does not allow whole roots to be exported to avoid them being planted in other countries. (Read more about why that’s important here)

 

Maca Root Chips are simply Maca roots cut into small chunks after being washed and dried. Our chips are pre-cooked (gelatinized) to ease digestion and to make them simpler to consume. Traditionally, dried Maca roots are boiled with water or milk and sugar to make a hearty porridge called Mazamorra. You can prepare Maca chips the same way or experiment with other ways of making them.

 

Preparation ideas for whole Maca root chips

  1. Simmer ½ cup of Macachips for about an hour and add to oatmeal or other warm breakfast cereal
  2. Simmer ½ cup of Maca chips for about an hour and add them to a smoothie
  3. Steep Maca chips in hot water for 10 minutes to make a tea – add sweetener as desired
  4. Try the traditional Mazamorra recipe – this makes for a hearty meal!

 

  • Ingredients:mazamorra-traditional-maca-porridge.jpg
    • 1 cup (130g) Maca chips
    • 1 cup (130g) flour
    • ¼ cup (32g) sugar
    • 2 cups (250ml) milk
    • Clove, cinnamon and/or anis to taste
    • 4 cups (500 ml) water
  • Preparation: Simmer the Maca chips in water along with spices until soft (about 1 hour), adding water if necessary.   Add flour, sugar and milk and simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy. Mazamorra may be kept in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.

 

Best Used For:

Our Gelatinized Sundried Yellow Maca is best for anyone with a sensitive stomach.  About 5% of people have minor stomach irritability, gas or bloating when using Raw Maca.  Gelatinized Maca does not produce this effect at all.   Gelatinized Maca undergoes a process of high heat and pressure to remove the starch content from the powdered root.   This makes the final product easier to digest.  Please note that results may vary from person to person.
