Our Sourcing Sets us Apart

All of our maca is grown in its native region, high in the Peruvian Andes. In 2010, we provided a critical no interest loan to help our growers build a processing facility in their local town of Concepcion, which allowed them to scale operations and exports and support their Andean community.

Maca Powder FAQs

What are the benefits of maca powder?

Maca powder, made from whole maca root (botanical name: Lepidium meyenii or Lepidium peruvianum chacon), is a superfood known for its numerous health benefits. Often referred to as Peruvian ginseng, this nutrient-rich powder contains a potent blend of essential amino acids,minerals and dietary fiber that supports the body’s endocrine system—the network of glands responsible for our energy levels, hormone balance, and overall well-being. Our organic gelatinized maca powder is processed for easier digestion and increased absorption.

What makes Navitas Organics Maca Powder unique?

Navitas Organics Maca Powder is sourced from the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains, where maca has been traditionally grown for centuries. Our powder is USDA organic certified, which ensures that our maca is grown and processed without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, and guarantees a pure and natural product. Our organic maca powder is known for its high quality and potency, providing you with the best of what this superfood has to offer.

Is your maca gelatinized?

Yes! Because maca is a starchy root vegetable, some people find that it can be hard to digest in its raw form. We use gelatinization, a processing step that uses water and heat to alter the starch molecules within a food, to make our maca easier to digest and absorb. As a bonus, gelatinization gives maca a slightly toastier flavor and decreases its bitterness.

What does maca taste like?

Malty, earthy—even a little bit like caramel! Maca's sweet, root flavors are delicious when paired with creamy ingredients like almond, coconut, vanilla, chocolate and banana, making it a favorite for lattes, baked goods, creamy smoothies and more. See our favorite recipes here

Does maca give you energy?

Yes, but not in the same way that a stimulant—like caffeine—does. Maca is an adaptogen, which means it boosts overall health by supporting the endocrine system. This system is responsible for the hormones that regulate and balance our energy levels, stress resiliency, and more. When consumed regularly, adaptogenic foods like maca support healthy energy levels throughout the day without the crash that stimulants can cause.

Is your maca pure Peruvian maca?

Yes, all of our maca is grown traditionally and sustainably in its native region, high in the Peruvian Andes Mountains. There, the harsh climate and mineral-rich soils create the perfect conditions for maca root to develop its adaptogenic properties!

Why is there a warning label on my maca?

Some of our superfoods fall under CA's Prop 65 labeling requirements. This is due to trace amounts of heavy metals that are naturally occurring in the organic soils in which our superfoods grow. Please note that Prop 65 is a right-to-know law, and not a determination of a product's safety. For more information, please see our Help Center articles about Prop 65 here.

What color maca do you source?

Maca root comes in three different colors—yellow maca, red maca and black maca—each of which is said to have its own unique properties and health benefits. Our organic Maca Powder contains all three colors as they naturally occur at each harvest in one bag for the best of all worlds! Yellow maca is the most abundant of the three and considered the most versatile for everyday use. It's credited with supporting and maintaining overall balanced health and wellbeing. Red maca contains the highest levels of antioxidants of all three colors and is thought to be especially supportive of hormone balance for both men and women. Black maca is the most rare and was traditionally considered sacred, often consumed by those battling acute health conditions. It's credited with increasing energy and vitality.

Does your packing facility handle allergens?

Yes, all of our superfoods are packaged in a facility that also handles common allergens. Our co-packers follow Good Manufacturing Practices, are HACCP certified, and thoroughly sanitize all equipment between every product run with organic, food-grade cleaners. All of our products are inherently gluten-free and are tested to ensure less than 20 parts per million of gluten, in compliance with FDA labeling regulations. We do not use soy, corn, or dairy derivatives in any of our products. Depending on the flavor, our Power Snacks may contain tree nuts and/or peanuts; see ingredient panels for more details.

Yes!
