Raw Black Maca Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO, Vegan, Fresh and Potent

Overview:

Our raw black maca root powder is made from 100% organically grown black maca roots, which are the rarest color of all maca (about 15% off the annual harvest). We consciously work only with farmers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level. They are committed both to organic farming and to producing the highest quality Maca products available anywhere. We're very happy to support their work.

Our Raw Black Maca Powder is:Organic Raw Black Maca Powder in Spoon

  • High in carbohydrates (59%) and bio-available protein (10.2%)
  • Contains 18 amino acids, 20 free fatty acids and 4 unique glucosinolates
  • Mineral rich with high levels of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron
  • Comes in double lined sealed foil pouches in 1 kg, 1 lb and 8 oz sizes

The Maca Team Quality Difference:

  • Getting the most out of adding maca powder to your diet starts with purchasing a high-quality product. There are number of key factors that affect how potent any given raw black maca powder is. In our production we take all of these into account in our efforts to bring you the best raw organic black maca powder available.
  • For best results, the roots should be grown on virgin land in and around Junin, Peru. This is the traditional high-altitude land where maca was first discovered in the wild and then cultivated 1000s of years. People have tried to grow maca outside of the very high Andes, but with very little success.
  • The roots must be picked at the appropriate time. An expert farmer checks the development of the roots regularly. At about 9 months after planting, they are ready to be harvested.
  • Once harvested, the roots must be carefully and fully dried in the mountain sun. Each night they must be covered to prevent the dew from getting them wet again.
  • After the roots are dry, it is very important to store them out of humidity to prevent mold. Ours are stored in the dry air of the high mountains in purpose-built warehouses.
  • Only when they are ready to be ground into do we bring the roots to the production facility. There the roots are cleansed, ground into a powder and tested 4 times for nutrient content and purity.
  • At the point the powder is packaged in opaque foil lined bags and readied to be shipped. Unlike many of our competitors, we order in small batches which means our maca powder almost always gets to our customers within 2-6 months of being packaged.


Pros and cons of powder over capsules and extracts:raw black maca powder

  • As a world leader in high quality Peruvian maca, we offer products in capsules, extracts, powders and even whole chips. Taking organic raw black maca in powder form comes with a number of advantages.
  • It is the least expensive options, ounce per ounce and gram per gram. That’s because production and packaging costs are simply lower.
  • It is the best way to mix maca into recipes such as smoothies, juices, desserts and more.
  • Because the powder is so finely ground, nutrients can be absorbed more easily in the intestine. The fineness of the powder means more surface area of the maca is exposed to your digestive tract and therefore more nutrients can be absorbed.

On the downside…

  • Maca powder is a bit less convenient to take with you on the go than capsules or extracts.
  • You must be careful to measure the exact amount that you want to take.
  • The taste can be overwhelming for some.


Who is it best for:

  • Raw black maca is the preferred maca of men and women looking for energy, stamina and strength
  • It is best for people with stronger digestive systems and who do not have intolerance to starch. If you have issues digesting starches, you should try 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)


Suggested Use:


Maca is classified as a food rather than a supplement or herb. There are no known contraindications or side effects related to taking it. 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.
