Raw Premium Black Maca Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO, Vegan and Raw
Our Premium Raw Black Maca Root Powder is carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. It comes from an organic farming cooperative in and around Junin, Peru. We work only with producers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level. The cooperative of farmers is committed both to organic farming and to producing the highest quality Maca products available anywhere. We're very happy to support their work.
Our Raw Premium Black Maca is made from 100% Black Maca roots. What makes this Maca “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, Maca 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. This type of 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-August)
Costs more as the process is more labor and equipment intensive
Is the most complete and potent all-around Maca available
