Discover Organic Traditions Maca X 6 Powder. Six kilos of fresh maca root varieties are condensed into one kilo of powder made from black, red, purple and yellow maca roots. Commonly known as ‘’The Peruvian Ginseng’’, Maca is a root vegetable indigenous to the Andes of Peru. Maca was domesticated by the Incas and has since been used by indigenous people as part of a daily diet. Rich in phytonutrients, Maca is considered to be one of the Amazon’s most important ‘superfoods’.
Unlike other dried high heat gelatinized Maca powders, Organic Traditions Maca X-6 is obtained through a process of ‘’cold gelatinization’’, which removes the starch from the root leaving a concentrated powder that is not only easier to absorb and digest, but that offers a greater amount of powerful phytonutrients. No added flavours, fillers, preservatives, additives, sweeteners, carriers, stabilizers, excipients or maltodextrin.
Use Maca X-6 in smoothies, for desserts, on top of yoghurt, berries or in any other recipe.
