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

Overviewraw premium tri color maca root powder

Our Premium Raw Tri-Color Blend Maca Root Powder is a blend of the the major colors of maca root: black, red and yellow. It is made from 100% grade A maca roots that are grown on farms in Peru that are dedicated to organic and traditional growing methods. These roots are fresh processed shortly after harvest to preserve as many nutrients as possible. The resulting powder is nutritionally potent, but is spicier in taste than standard sundried maca. It is a good choice for individuals who already have experience with maca root products and are looking to try something new.

Premium Tri-Color Maca Powder:

We call this tri-color maca blend “Heritage Harvest” because people in the Andes have traditionally eaten all maca colors together. It was only in the late 1990s that maca roots started being separated by color. That’s because the three color ranges, yellow, red and black have been shown to have slightly different properties and nutrient profiles. One advantage of taking tri-color maca powder is that it gives you benefits of all three of these colors.

What makes this maca “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, freshly harvested maca roots are processed immediately. 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 tri-color maca powder.

This 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 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

What Are The Disadvatages of Raw Premium Tri-Color Maca?

There are two main factors to be aware of when choosing a raw premium powder.

  1. Premium maca powder tastes much stronger. It has a more pungent/spicy taste than standard sundried maca. While some people enjoy the taste, it is more common for people to dislike it. If you are concerned about that, you can get the same powder in capsule form or try our standard raw tri-color maca. It’s also possible to hide the taste in some maca recipes as well.
  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.raw premium tri-color maca powder from The Maca Team

Best Used For:

With a blend of about 40% yellow, 30% red and 30% black maca roots, raw premium tri-color maca powder is a great way to get benefits of all 3 colors. This is a superior all-purpose maca for both men and women who have already had some experience with maca. It contains a combination of the three different root colors and is a higher potency product. At the same time, it’s important to note that this powder is much stronger in taste.

Please note that results may vary from person to person.
