Maca is a Peruvian super root that is known to be a powerful adaptogen. This is our favorite superfood in a slightly different form. Gelatinized powder is not a gelatin, it is a simple heat process that breaks down the starches in the maca root, allowing for easier digestion. Both regular and gelatinized maca powder can be used interchangeably in recipes.
Maca helps balance the stress levels and bolster energy and resiliency in the body. The properties in maca powder are vital to fighting day-to-day stress and enabling health and well-being.
Maca powder has a sweet, nutty taste with hints of butterscotch. It can be mixed easily into healthy smoothies, shakes, cereal and warm drinks and can be added to pancakes, desserts and baked goods.
