High up in the Peruvian mountains grows the root of a powerful cruciferous root vegetable called maca. Our Raw Maca Powder is a delicious and nutritious blend of yellow, red and black maca varieties hand harvested and sun dried in the traditional way, ensuring nutrients and freshness are uncompromised.
Good for you, good for the planet
Maca contains beneficial phytonutrients and is a known adaptogen. Adaptogens work in synergy with the body by providing overall nutritional support to help you ‘adapt’ during times of stress and fatigue.
Creating economic opportunities in an otherwise unproductive land, this fairly traded organic maca provides positive outcomes for small-scale Peruvian farmers through economic and social empowerment.
Ways to enjoy
Enjoy the sweet and malty taste of maca mixed into your daily smoothie, hot drink, yoghurt, cereal or juice. Raw maca powder can also be added to pancakes, healthy baking and raw treats for a delicious nutrient boost.
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.
