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

OverviewPremium Raw Red Maca Powder Serving Suggestion

Our Premium Raw Red Maca Root Powder is made from 100% grade-A red maca roots. These roots are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled on our 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 the highest quality maca products available anywhere. We're very happy to support their work.

Premium Raw Red Maca Root Powder

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. The level of glucosinolates is standardized at above 1% in our raw premium red maca powder.

This type of 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
  • Is 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 spicinessPremium Raw Red Maca Powder from The Maca Team
  • 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

Why Take Premium Raw Red Maca Powder Over Standard Maca Powder?

This is an excellent question. There are a few reasons to take a premium maca product over a standard one. First, as we’ve already mentioned, premium maca is higher in glucosinolate content than standard (sundried) maca root products. Maca root is a cruciferous vegetable like radishes, cabbage, broccoli, horseradish and rutabagas to name a few. These type of vegetables have anti-cancer properties in that they help eliminate free radicals and are recommended for anyone who is fighting cancer as well as anyone who is particularly health conscious.  Second, premium maca products are somewhat more potent in other nutritional categories as well. This means that you may be able to take a bit less and get similar results. Finally, this type of maca is tested to achieve more standardized levels of nutrients. For that reason, results can be more consistent from batch to batch.

Are There Any Disadvantages?

There are two main disadvantages to choosing raw premium red maca powder over standard raw red maca powder. Raw Premium Red Maca Energy Balls Recipe

  1. Premium maca powder tastes much stronger and spicier. It can even be a bit bitter or even astringent for some people. While there are a few people who appreciate and even enjoy this flavor, many don’t. This is easy enough to overcome, either by adding the powder to a recipe, such as red maca energy balls that hides the taste or by taking it in capsule form instead.
  2. Premium maca costs more. Due to the special processing and limited amount of harvest dedicated to producing premium maca it is more expensive (5%-15% on average). While you may be able to take a bit less due to its potency, it does cost more up front.

Recommended for:

Red maca powder in general has been shown, under phytonutrient analysis, to be higher in certain compounds that support the body in antioxidant and antitumoral activity.

We recommend premium raw red maca:

  • For men looking to use maca for prostate support
  • For women's fertility and libido (We recommend black maca for male fertility)
  • For bone density - most important for women and children
  • For everyone wanting to experience the highest antioxidant and nutrient levels of all maca powders

Please note that results may vary from person to person.
