Gelatinized Premium Black Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO and Vegan
Our Gelatinized Premium Black Maca Root Powder is carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. It comes 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.
Our Gelatinized Premium Black Maca powder is made from 100% Black Maca roots. 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 Black 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)
Best Used For:

In addition, we've had several reports from both male and female athletes that Black Maca is a favorite for increasing muscle mass and physical performance. Please note that results may vary from person to person.

Really I don't know what to write. I do not feel any change. In the past I used not the premium. I don't feel much difference. But it could just be me?
Been using Maca for a year or so. I usually mix a heaping spoon full of Black Maca with water first thing in the morning before I go to the gym. I find that Black Maca gives me more energy and stamina. I'm 57 years old, and can make guys half my age "fall out" trying to out lift or out pace me in the cross-fit class I take... If I ever skip a day taking Black Maca, I feel it... the "reserves" are not in my tank. The only reason I gave the Gelatinized Black Maca 4 stars vs 5. is I prefer the "earthy taste" of the raw black maca. Both varieties work well. Look at it as a "super food", there is serious nutrition here. It works.
I've been throwing this stuff in coffee and smoothies and it's Great! Best maca on the market. Fast and friendly service.
Nice earthy taste and mixes well with water. Using 3-5 g a day and feel a boost in energy and subtle libido increase. No noticeable undesirable side effects. Prompt delivery too.
