Maca is a root vegetable and member of the cruciferous family of plants that includes broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, turnip and radish. Maca grows both wild and cultivated in central Peru in the high elevation region of the Andes mountains. Peruvians have been cultivating this crop in this harsh climate for more than 3000 years as maca is a staple food. Maca is eaten dried, baked, boiled and mashed, used in soups, and made into a fermented drink called maca chichi.
GY MACA powder originates from the Junin Plateau high in the Peruvian Andes Mountains of South America. Today, the Quechua people continue to grow this superfood at its natural altitude (as high as 4500 m), making maca the highest altitude crop on Earth. The character and properties of maca have been developed by the extreme conditions under which it grows, thriving in the intense sunlight and thin atmospheric conditions.
Maca is low temperature processed and certified Organic, EU Europe, JAS Japan and KUI Peru Kosher.
Maca has an earthy taste that is slightly nutty with a hint of butterscotch. Maca is also a great emulsifier and can be used to draw fats together with starches/sugars in any recipe.
