Gelatinised Maca does not contain gelatin and is still vegan. Gelatinisation is a gentle heat process that breaks down the starches and fibres to allow easier digestion for sensitive tummies and better absorption. This certified organic maca is hand harvested and dried at the source ensuring nutrients and freshness are uncompromised.
Good for you, good for the planet

Creating economic opportunities in an otherwise unproductive land, our Fair Trade maca provides positive outcomes for small-scale Peruvian farmers through economic and social empowerment

Origins of maca
Native to the Central Andes in Peru, maca is frost and disease resistant, thriving in harsh environmental conditions where little else grows. Cherished as food and medicine for thousands of years, maca was consumed for energy and vitality as well as fertility and libido and was even taken by Incan warriors prior to battle for strength and endurance.
