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

gelatinized yellow maca powder from the maca teamOur gelatinized yellow maca root powder is made from Peruvian grown yellow maca roots. Yellow maca is the most common of all 3 of the major maca colors, making up about 60% of each year’s harvest. This particular yellow maca powder has been gelatinized or pre-cooked in a specialized process which dissolves starch content, which makes the final product easier to digest. Nothing is added to the powder during this process and it remains 100% plant-based and suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike.

What Makes Our Gelatinized Yellow Maca Powder Special

Like all of our maca products our gelatinized yellow maca powder is made from maca roots that are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. The roots come from an organic farming cooperative in and around Junin, Peru which is the traditional home of maca. 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.

We also take great care to provide the freshest maca possible by ordering in small batches and carefully packaging our products.

It takes about 4 kg of maca roots to produce 1 Kg of yellow gelatinized maca powder, making it more concentrated than raw maca products.
