Maca (lepidium meyenii) is rated as one of the Andean roots and tubers cruciferous protein content. Maca (also called Peruvian Andean Maca ) has the surprising quality to grow to extraordinary heights of 3500-4800 meters in the most inhospitable area of the Andes mountain range, where temperatures are extreme.

Origin of our raw material: Our Maca raw material comes from the plateau o bonbonJunin, Pasco, Peru ,where it is cultivated at more than 3500 metres in rotation plots (grown every 5 years) in the high Andes of Peru.

Production Process
Maca is planted from September to December. The seeds are scattered in the fields to be harvested in 6 to 8 months. After collected, the roots are left to dry in the sun for 2 months, during which period they lose 75% of their original weight. This slow drying process causes maca to change flavor: from a bitterspicy flavor to a caramel flavor.
Gelatinization process, gives it greater solubility in liquids without losing properties, increases digestibility and the absorption of nutrients.
