Raw Sundried Maca

Our Raw Sundried Maca products are made from Maca roots that are dried in the high Andes mountain sun for 10-40 days after harvest. This is the traditional way of processing Maca and makes for a sweeter and softer flavor. It also results in higher levels of “macaenes and “macamides,” nutrients unique to Maca and thought to be responsible for Maca’s hormone balancing activity.  

All of our Raw Maca products are never heated above 105F / 40C.  This is important because research has shown that enzymes and other vital nutrients begin to break down at temperatures above 118F / 48C.
