The root vegetable Lepidium meyenii (maca) is a member of the cruciferous family that also includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale. In the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains where our maca root is grown, the harsh environment has shaped this superfood to be tough enough to withstand any environmental challenge. It passes its strength on to you. The roots are carefully selected, then washed before they are cut, cooked, dried and made ready for milling.

Cacao is a bean grown on a tree native to Central America. It provides high levels of beneficial flavonoids, including catechin, epicatechin, and procyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants. Cacao has more antioxidants than red wine, green tea and blueberries combined! These antioxidants are known for their ability to decrease free radical damage that can contribute to cardiovascular disease and symptoms. Cacao is naturally high in magnesium, manganese and copper, helping to keep your systems and enzymes functioning optimally.

Organika’s organic maca undergoes a specialized procedure called gelatinization. Despite the name, this procedure does not involve gelatin in any form; it consists of splitting large starch chains into smaller molecules. This leads to a much smoother, less gritty experience for you. The additional slow cooking in our gelatinization methods may enhance the availability of some nutrients and minerals. Even the natives of Peru cook or heat process their maca in some manner for better digestibility and increased benefits.

Q: Does your maca contain gelatin?

A: Gelatinization does not mean there is “gelatin” in it. It is the name of the process used to remove the starches to make the maca root more digestible. It is still vegan and vegetarian friendly. 

Q: Is your maca powder a raw food?

A: Our maca is not considered to be “raw” because it goes through the gelatinization process, which includes a slow cooking process.

Q: I’ve had problems with other maca powders giving me gas and bloating. Will I get that with your product?

A: No. The gelatinization process can make it easier for those with sensitive digestive systems to handle due to the removal of the starches and the pre-digestion of cooking. 

Q: Am I adding a lot of calories to my diet when I add Organika’s Maca + Cacao powder to my smoothie? 

A: Maca is a great source of copper and manganese, and a good source of B1 and iron and the phytonutrient macaridine. Cacao provides magnesium, manganese and copper, and high levels of phenolic antioxidants. Besides all the fantastic vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, for every one teaspoon (5g) serving, you get 20 calories, one gram of fibre, and one gram of protein.
