About Our Organic Maca Powder

Annual plant from the Brassicaceae Family, growing widely all over the Cordillera of the Andes at various altitudes between 4000 and 4500 meters above the sea level. The plant has been used for about 2000 years by the Inca Indians and primitive cultivars of Maca have been cultivated as far back as 1600 B.C. It is cultivated in several varieties, differing mainly in the colour of the plant and roots.

About Gelatinised Maca

Gelatinisation is an extrusion process that removes starch from Maca thus concentrating the active ingredients.

Our Organic Maca Powder is produced to the highest standards, following the same farming practices that have been used locally in Peru for generations. Maca has been eaten in Peru for thousands of years and its reputation and enduring popularity today speaks for itself.

Maca Cooperative

How our Maca is processed?

Our maca is grown by a co-operative of local farmers in Peru at just above 4,000 metres, in the Carhuamayo province of the 'Meseta del Bombom' (Bombom Plateau). The maca seed is sown in Sept11th Septat the start of the rainy season. After sowing, the seeds are buried using branches or sheep are released into the field to trample them into the ground. The maca plants grow throughout the winter and are ready to be harvested by the following May when the roots are about 5cm in diameter. The maca roots are dug out by hand using a small hoe called a cashu to avoid damaging them, then laid out under the sun for 10-15 days until they are dried.

These dried maca roots can be stored for up to seven years, but ours are quickly transported to a local processing plant where they are carefully weighed, cleaned and the best quality roots selected for processing. These roots are washed, disinfected and cut into small 10mm segments, before being fully dehydrated at 45°C under humidity control. This dry maca root is then milled into a fine powder of 60 mesh specification (particles less than 0.251 mm diameter) and tested for microbes.
