Dubbed the superfood of the Andes, Maca is popular amongst the indigenous population of the Peruvian Andes. Cultivated in spring, Maca is a small root vegetable from the Maca plant grown at altitudes over 3500 metres. Traditionally integrated in the nutrition of natives, the Maca root has evolved into a modern day superfood. Maca has a rich malty flavour that combines well with cacao, another superfood. Hand selected for the best quality, the Maca root is cleaned in natural water, and then dried. The temperature application breaks the starch molecules promoting its easier digestion and bio-availability of other nutrients in Maca. The Maca root is then ground into a fine powder and packaged.
