What is Organic Maca Powder? Dubbed the “superfood of the Andes”, Maca is popular amongst the indigenous population of the Peruvian Andes. Maca is a small root vegetable from the Maca plant typically grown at altitudes over 3,500 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”. Maca provides a range of nutrients, an abundance of calcium and an assortment of vitamins including C, B2 (riboflavin) and B6. Our Organically certified raw Maca roots are cultivated without the use of pesticides. Once dried the Maca root is ground into a fine powder and packaged. Organic Maca powder is certified organic by the Soil Association under the code GB-ORG-05.
