Raw Premium Black Maca
Our Raw Premium Black Maca is made from light to dark gray Maca roots, which are the rarest of Maca root colors, accounting for less than 20% of the annual harvest. Instead of being sundried, these 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 Black Maca.
Raw Premium Black 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
- Costs more as the process is more labor and equipment intensive
