Raw Maca

Maca is a root vegetable belonging to the cruciferous family, which includes broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, turnip, and radish. It grows both wild and cultivated in central Peru, particularly in the high-elevation region of the Andes mountains. Peruvians have been cultivating this crop in this harsh climate for more than 3000 years, making maca a staple food. It is eaten dried, baked, boiled, 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 meters, making maca the highest altitude crop on Earth. The extreme conditions under which it grows, such as intense sunlight and thin atmospheric conditions, have developed the unique character and properties of maca.

Maca has an earthy taste that is slightly nutty with a hint of butterscotch. It is also a great emulsifier and can be used to combine fats with starches or sugars in any recipe.
