Premium Raw Black Maca Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO and Vegan

Overview

Our Premium Raw Black Maca Root Powder comes from 100% black maca roots that are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. The roots themselves come from an organic farming cooperative near the high Andes mountain town of 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 the highest quality Maca products available anywhere. We're very happy to support their work.

Premium Raw Black Maca Powder

What makes our Raw Premium Black Maca different is the way that it is processed after being harvested. After harvesting, maca roots can either be sundried or “fresh processed.” Premium maca is “fresh processed.” What that means is that immediately after harvest, grade-A maca roots are transported to a processing facility where they are dried in large dehydrators. The roots are then stored in preparation for being ground into a pulp and then into a powder. This special processing leaves more glucosinolates in the final product. The level of glucosinolates is standardized at above 1% in our Organic Raw Premium Black Maca Powder. This product:

  • 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
  • Is low temperature dried - never heated over 105F / 40C
  • 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)
  • Costs more as the process is more labor and equipment intensive
  • Is the most complete and potent all-around Maca available

The Advantages of Premium Raw Black Maca Powder

  1. Since it tends to be more potent and nutrient dense, serving sizes can be smaller
  2. The standardization of nutrients assures similar results each time
  3. It may work more quickly for some people

The Disadvantages of Premium Raw Black Maca Powder

The main disadvantage of taking raw black maca powder in this premium presentation is that it is a stronger tasting type of maca. Maca is in the botanical family that also includes horseradish. While it’s never as spicy as horseradish you can expect premium maca to taste much more pungent that sundried maca and even a bit spicy. Some customers don’t mind the taste, while others prefer to take our premium products in capsules instead.

Premium maca also costs a bit more than sundried maca powders. This is because of the extra labor and special machinery and handling needed to produce the final product.

One other fact for you to be aware of when using premium maca is that the powder will be significantly lighter in color than sundried maca. Some people have even called it “white maca.” The lighter color is due to the fresh processing we describe above and is neither an advantage nor a disadvantage. It’s simply something to be aware of.

We Recommend It For:Premium Raw Black Maca Powder Bags

In general terms black maca is specifically indicated for male fertility and libido as well as for muscle building and endurance. Research conducted in Peru in 2009 indicated that Black Maca was the best of all Maca powders for increasing sperm count and motility. 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.

Also If you have issues digesting starches, you should try premium gelatinized black maca powder instead.

Storage/Shelf Life:

Maca keeps well for up to 24 months provided that it is stored in a sealed bag out of direct sunlight and at below 70% humidity. (More storage and use tips)

Daily dosage recommendations range from 3 -9 grams (1-3 teaspoons) for a healthy individual weighing about 160 lbs. Maca may be taken with water, juices or milks. It also may be mixed with food.
