Historical Andean Superfood
Maca root was first harvested during the pre-Incan times and has been used for thousands of years as a plant-based superfood. Today, maca powder is one of the world’s most popular and nutrient-rich superfoods.
Raw vs. Gelatinized Maca
Beware of “raw maca” claims! Maca from Peru—the gold standard for this renowned root—is always gelatinized (cooked) to break down hard-to-digest starch, making it much easier to absorb. Viva Naturals Organic Maca Powder is gelatinized and is certified gluten-free, organic and non GMO, so you get the most out of your maca!
How to Use
Maca from Peru is often said to have a butterscotch-like flavor, and adds a nice nutty flavor to wholesome recipes. Add 1 tsp of our maca powder organic to smoothies, oatmeal, coffee, baked goods and savory foods—it works great in sauces, too!
GELATINIZED MACA ROOT – Unlike raw maca, our organic maca root powder is gelatinized in order to improve the absorption of this renowned root. Gelatinization ensures hard-to-digest starch is broken down by applying low heat to raw maca roots, resulting in a highly absorbable powder.
AUTHENTIC PERUVIAN MACA – Known as “Peruvian ginseng”, maca from Peru has been harvested by natives for over 2,000 years! It was traditionally used by Incan warriors before battles, so it’s no wonder why it’s still considered a superfood today.
YELLOW MACA ROOT – Maca roots grow in three colors: yellow, black and red. Our organic maca powder is gelatinized only from yellow maca roots, which we find to be the best maca powder variety!
VERSATILE SUPERFOOD – Gelatinized maca powder gives a nice nutty flavor, and can be used to enhance a variety of recipes including smoothies, baked goods and savory items. This delectable superfood will enhance the taste and flavor of any modern-day recipe, while increasing the nutritional value of your meals.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC & NON GMO – Viva Naturals Organic Maca Root is certified organic, non GMO, gluten-free, and is vegan-friendly, too!
