Gelatinized Premium Tri-Color Maca Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO and Vegan

Overviewpremium gelatinized tri-color maca powder

Our gelatinized premium tri-color maca root powder is made from grade A maca roots that are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. These roots are cultivated and harvested on an organic farming cooperative in and around Junin, Peru. This particular maca powder contains a blend of all three maca root colors, red, black and yellow, is pre-cooked (gelatinized) to ease digestion and is specially processed to preserve nutrient content, including glucosinolates, at high levels.

Premium Gelatinized Tri-Color Maca Root Powder

Our premium gelatinized tri-color maca powder is made from about 40% yellow, 30% red and 30% black maca roots. We often call it a “heritage harvest” product because people have traditionally eaten all three colors of maca in a mixuture.

What makes this maca powder “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being dried in the high mountain sun, select 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.

This maca powder is also “gelatinized.” Gelatinization is a process in which maca is heated to high temperatures (160F / 70C). The heat causes the starch molecules in maca root 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, leaving it 100% vegan.

Premium gelatinized tri-color 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)

Given the special handling and combination of maca colors, premium gelatinized maca powder is in our opinion the best all-purpose maca powder for both men and women.

What Are The Advantages Of Taking This Premium Product?

This maca powder is an excellent way to get the most out of maca on a budget. Because it involves less work in separating the colors, tri-color maca is the least expensive type of maca we offer. At the same time, premium processing concentrates important nutrients in maca that make it particularly effective. And the fact that it is gelatinized means that you can take it without compromising your digestive system.

What Are The Disadvantages?

The main disadvantage of taking this type of maca powder is the taste. Premium maca powder is much spicier and stronger in flavor than standard maca. The flavor is difficult to disguise in smoothies or other recipes. Some people appreciate it, some people just tolerate it and others can’t stand it. If you are concerned about the flavor we recommend starting with a small bag. Alternatively you can try our premium gelatinized tri-color maca capsules instead.
