Organic Premium Gelatinized Red Maca Powder


SKU: N/A Category:


Our gelatinized premium red maca powder is made from 100% red maca roots which are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. The roots comes from an organic farming cooperative in and around Junin, Peru. We work only with suppliers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level. The cooperative of farmers is committed both to organic farming and to producing only the highest quality maca products.


Premium Gelatinized Red Maca Root Powder

There are two important considerations to understand about what makes this product unique.

First, what makes this maca “premium” is the special way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, maca roots are fresh processed immediately after harvest. After coming out of the ground they are cleaned in a citrus solution, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried. This special processing leaves more glucosinolates in the final product. Glucosinolates are nutrients that have been associated with anti-cancer properties.

Second, this maca powder is gelatinized. Gelatinization is a process in which maca roots are heated to high temperatures (160F / 70C). The heat causes the starch molecules in maca to irreversibly dissolve and the result is a powder that has had some of its nutrients compromised but is easier to digest than raw maca. It’s important to note that nothing is added to maca during the gelatinization process.


  • Comes from a modern approach to processing maca developed in the past 25 years
  • Is fresh processed – maca roots are dried in dehydrators immediately after harvest
  • Has higher glucosinolate content – nutrients which may help prevent cancer
  • Is much stronger tasting – has a more noticeable maca flavor with more spiciness
  • Is limited in supply since it must be produced from fresh roots during annual harvest (June-August)


Benefits of Taking Premium Gelatinized Red Maca Powder

  • For men looking to use maca for prostate health support
  • For women’s fertility and libido (We recommend black maca for male fertility)
  • For bone density support – most important for women and children
  • For everyone wanting to experience the highest antioxidant and nutrient levels of all maca powders


The major benefits associated with Black maca

Our gelatinized premium black maca root powder is specifically indicated for male fertility and libido as well as for muscle building and endurance. Research conducted in Peru in 2009 indicated that black maca was the best of all maca powders for increasing sperm count and motility. In addition, we’ve had several reports from both male and female athletes that black maca is a favorite for increasing muscle mass and physical performance. Please note that results may vary from person to person.

How To Use

There are several easy ways to use gelatinized maca powder. This simplest is to add it to water or milk or yogurt. But if you’d like to get more creative that’s certainly possible too. You can add to smoothies, baked goods or pancakes

Suggested Use:

1-3 teaspoons mixed in water, juice or smoothies daily.
