Already the Native Indians used the nutrient-rich Maca root the Indians to enhance their meager diet. The Spanish conquerors were quickly convinced by the Maca root. We source our Maca from the heights of the Peruvian Andes, where the roots are harvested by hand and dried thoroughly. After a quality control the finely ground Maca powder is packaged in tightly closeable PE-cans to preserve the valuable ingredients.
Maca (Lepidium meyeni) belongs to the genus of cress and has been cultivated for about 2000 years. The Maca root was already very popular back then among the Indians. The tuberous roots are either eaten fresh or preserved by drying, then rubbed to a fine powder and ingested or further processed. The maca root has a high carbohydrate content, has a caramel-like sweetness and only a slight sharpness in taste.
Origin of our Maca powder
Our Maca comes from the highlands of the Peruvian Andes. Here, the robust plant is exposed to extreme climatic conditions with extreme temperature fluctuations and strong winds. Maca is grown at an altitude of at least 3000 m and harvested by hand during the months of June and July.
PROCESSING our Maca powder
After the hand-picked harvest, the maca roots are spread out on tarps to dry in the sun. The gentle drying of the roots takes place in 3 stages over a period of several weeks. For the preparation of NU3 maca powder, the tubers have to be cleaned, disinfected with biodegradable lemon extract, then ground in special mills, again dried and again ground to a fine powder.
Quality of our Maca powder
Through the slow and gentle drying process the valuable ingredients of the maca root are preserved. Only once a new order has been received are new dried roots processed into the fine powder. While the roots are being shredded the granulate is dried again at a temperature of 40 ° C for 4 hours to gently remove the residual moisture. The pellets are then finely ground and packed in mills. Only after the final product has been re-examined in the laboratory, is it released for sale.
