Maca Powder comes from the Maca plant which is native to Peru. It is a cruciferous vegetable from the carrot, radish and parsnip family. It has been cultivated and used by the Peruvians for several thousand years, both as a foodstuff and also for its medicinal properties. Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. Maca is an adaptogen so it "adapts" to your body's metabolism and can help you achieve your optimal level of health and energy.
This Maca is of the highest quality, grown in Peru without the use of any pesticides or herbicides. The highest quality maca root tubers are carefully selected and using a careful drying and grinding process, the small chips are obtained. This ensures the maca retains all its potency and is easy to use. Maca flour doesn't contain any type of preservative, colouring or flavouring. It is 100% natural. We also stock gelatinized maca powder, which is maca powder with the starch removed.
Maca chips can be eaten as they are or sprinkled over cereal, porridge, muesli or mixed into yoghurt (with a touch of honey). Try sprinkled on salads or mixed with cacao nibs and goji berries for a tasty snack or super-muesli or simply add to any other recipes where you may ordinarily use chocolate chips or cacao nibs. Maca is considered a food and therefore has no set dosages. As a guide, 1-3 teaspoons a day is recommended, however it can also be taken in higher doses such as a heaped tablespoon or two each day. For those new to Maca, it is recommended to start with smaller doses and increase gradually.
