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 Gelatinized Powder FAQs
What's the difference between gelatinized maca and regular maca?
Gelatinization is a processing step that uses water and heat to alter the starch molecules within a food, making it easier to digest and absorb. Maca, a root vegetable, is naturally high in starch. While many people enjoy our regular Maca Powder as-is, other find that our Gelatinized Maca Powder is gentler on their digestive tract and more effective in their bodies.
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. 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.
