Maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes. It was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance; in fact, Incan warriors would often consume maca before long journeys and battles. Today's warriors (athletes) are confirming what history has to say about this incredible superfood.
The Sunfood Difference:
Our maca is grown at high altitudes in areas untouched by pollution, where it’s sun-dried and low-temperature processed into a fine, pure powder, ensuring maximum nutrient content. Inferior maca products are grown at lower elevations and processed at higher temperatures. With its purity, Sunfood maca powder has a unique nutty flavor that goes well with sweet or savory dishes.
We deliver maca to you as a dried, raw, organic root powder. You may use a tablespoon or more of this powder in smoothies, teas, nut milks, coffee or just about any natural beverage you can think of. Maca is a great addition to desserts and sweet treats, favorite beverages, protein drinks, nut butters, desserts and raw chocolate creations. Additionally, maca may be added to homemade jams, broths and puddings.
