What is Maca?
Maca (Lepidium Meyenii Walp) is a root that grows only in the Andean highlander zones of Peru, on the Junin Plateau, at altitudes of 4,250 mt. over sea level (approx. 14,000 ft.)
The plant is grown from seed and root maturation generally occurs within seven months. Its appearance may be described as a shrub with a low-growing, mat-like stem arrangement, small, off-white flowers, and scalloped leaves. The root can be one of several colours (cream, purple or black) and is of comparable sharpe to a turnip or radish.
High quality Maca has a high content of darker roots (black and red-purple), its colour will be dark and its flavour and aroma nutty; pleasant, but strong. Certified organic maca products have no heat or radiation applied within the drying or production process.
