Organic Gelatinised Maca Powder

Maca is a plant which grows naturally at high-altitude, in the Peruvian Andes. For many centuries it has been a central part of local diets in Peru and Bolivia, where almost every part of the plant is used. Also known as “Peruvian Ginseng”, Maca is a nutrition-packed root vegetable, flourishing in environments often 4000m above sea level.

Plants at this harsh altitude have to take in as many nutrients from the ground as possible to survive, hence why Sevenhills Wholefoods source this product for its impressive nutritional content. Our Organic Gelatinised Maca Powder has a ratio of 5:1, so 5kg of the raw root is used to produce 1kg of gelatinised Maca Powder.

Processing 

Maca has a high starch content, which some regard as an inhibitor to the digestion of the product. For this reason, we offer this gelatinised powder. Gelatinisation is a process of gentle hydration and heating of the raw product, which breaks down the starch molecules, promoting its easier digestion and bio-availability of other nutrients in Maca. The result is a product formed into a different and more digestible state, whose nutrition is easy to absorb. We then mill into a fine powder. 

Benefits 

  • A complete protein, Maca provides 19 amino acids, 4 different alkaloids, 20 different fatty acids.
  • Micronutrients include an abundance of Calcium and an assortment of vitamins including C, E, B1 and B2.
  • In addition to Maca’s antioxidant content, keeping the body’s cells free from oxidative stress damage.
  • It is a popular adaptogen,  known to maintain our skin, nervous and immune systems, and psychological function healthy, as well as helping to keep tiredness and fatigue at bay.

Allergens 

This product does not contain any substances causing allergies (Directive 2007/68/EC) as or intolerances as ingredients or by the possibility of cross-contamination. No colours, binders, fillers or preservatives added. Certified organic by the Soil Association and registered by the Vegan society.

Lovely Product

I use this daily for hormone balance and love it. Gelatinised maca is much easier to digest and so I much prefer this product to regular maca.
