Whole Maca Root Chips

organic-maca-chips-banner.pngOur Maca Root Chips are the closest to whole Maca roots that can legally be exported from Peru. That’s because Maca is considered a “heritage product” of Peru and the Peruvian government does not allow whole roots to be exported to avoid them being planted in other countries. (Read more about why that’s important here).

 Maca Root Chips are simply Maca roots cut into small chunks after being washed and dried. Our chips are pre-cooked (gelatinized) to ease digestion and to make them simpler to consume. Traditionally, dried Maca roots are boiled with water or milk and sugar to make a hearty porridge called Mazamorra. You can prepare Maca chips the same way or experiment with other ways of making them.

Preparation ideas for whole Maca root chips

  1. Simmer ½ cup of Maca chips for about an hour and add to oatmeal or other warm breakfast cereal.  mazamorra-traditional-maca-porridge.jpg
