What is concentrated maca?
Traditionally in Peru maca is either boiled in water (activated maca) or macerated (soaked) and extracted in plant based alcohols (concentrated maca) to create more concentrated forms for specific health benefits. Our concentrated maca replicates this ancient method, in which we macerate our maca to extract the pure bioactive components then filter and concentrated before spray drying it into a potent concentrated powder - ready for dilution. For every 10kg of fresh maca we only produce 400g of this specialised concentrated maca extract. Our concentrated maca powder comes in the pure sacred colours – red maca or black maca, each with unique health benefits. It is very different in taste, texture, properties and benefits compared to our other activated maca powders due to its potency, bioavailability and rapid mode of action.
