Gelatinized Premium Black Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO and VeganGelatinized premium black maca powder in a bowl


The most potent gelatinized black maca available anywhere, this premium powder is made from 100% black maca roots that are 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.

Premium Gelatinized Black Maca Powder

What makes this gelatinized black maca powder “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, maca roots are fresh processed immediately after harvest. After being carefully taken out of the ground they are graded and transported immediately to a processing facility. There, they cleaned in a citrus solution and low temperature dried. This special modern, fast processing leaves more glucosinolates and other nutrients in the final product.
After initial drying, the maca roots are then gelatinized. 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 is easier to digest than raw maca.

It’s important to note that nothing is added to maca during the gelatinization process and that gelatinized premium black maca is 100% vegan. This type of maca powder:

  • 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)

Advantages of Taking Premium Gelatinized Black Maca PowderGelatinized Premium Maca Powders

Taking maca root in powder form is by far the most popular way to enjoy it. It offers several advantages when compared to taking maca in capsule or liquid extract form.

  1. First, powdered maca is the most economical way to take maca root. This is because it involves less processing and manufacturing than capsules or extracts.
  2. Second, taking maca in powdered form is versatile. It allows you to easily add it to smoothies or drinks and to come up with your own favorite maca recipes.
  3. Third, in specific terms of premium gelatinized maca powder, you are able to take a bit less than standard maca powders since it is overall more nutritionally potent.

Disadvantages Of Premium Gelatinized Black Maca Powder

There really are no major disadvantages to taking premium gelatinized black maca powder with the exception of it costing a bit more. The reason it is higher in price is two-fold. First, since it is processed only once a year (at the time of harvest) it is limited in production. We must place our order for an entire year at that time. Second, the process involves more labor, specialized machinery and special testing to powder and standardize the final product.

Note: premium gelatinized black maca powder is darker in color than premium raw maca powder (due to the heat used in the gelatinization process). It is also less spicy tasting than the premium raw powder, but a bit stronger tasting than standard gelatinized black maca powder.
