The Sunfood Difference
Our organic maca is grown high in the Peruvian Andes in areas untouched by the pollution of modern industry. It is sun-dried and then low-temperature processed into a fine, pure powder. Our low temperature process ensures maximum nutrient content. Our competitors’ maca is typically grown at lower elevations, mixed with many different strains of maca and processed at high temperatures.
Our organic, raw maca powder has a unique nutty flavor that can go with sweet or savory dishes. It’s a perfect thickener for soups but also goes great with smoothies.
Try adding a spoonful to your smoothies, juices, or soups. Or, sprinkle on top of your salad greens to add a unique flavor and nutrition boost. As cacao goes especially well with cacao, add it as a superfood boost to your favorite dessert recipes.
