Dried Red Maca Root
Red maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes. It was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance. In fact, Incan warriors would often consume maca before long journeys and battles. Today’s athletes are confirming what history has to say about this incredible superfood.
Our Red Maca is grown at high elevations in areas untouched by pollution where it is sun-dried and low-temperature processed into a fine powder. Other maca products are grown at lower elevations and processed at higher temperatures.Red Maca powder has a unique earthy flavor, slightly milder than regular maca, which goes well with sweet or savory dishes.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of Red Maca Powder to smoothies, or try in your favorite recipe! Mix it into teas, nut milks, coffee, protein drinks, or just about any natural beverage you can think of. Maca is also a great addition to dessert creations, homemade jams, broths and puddings. Maca has an unusual relationship with cacao nibs and all cacao products in general. Mix maca into all your favorite chocolate treats and experience real culinary magic.
