Gelatinized Maca powder does not refer to a mixture of Maca powder and gelatin, as some would think. Gelatinization refers to the process of breaking down starch chains in the Maca root (by pre-cooking the roots under controlled temperature conditions), thus making the root powder more easily digested and Maca’s active ingredients more concentrated and more quickly absorbed by the body. Gelatinized Maca Powder is great for sensitive stomachs as well as for those who are looking for a faster-acting and more concentrated /potent effect of Maca.

So what is Maca? Ancient Inca warriors are historically known to consume Maca for strength and stamina before battles due to its powerful energy-boosting properties. Maca, popularly regarded as the Peruvian Ginseng, is a cruciferous root vegetable grown in the Andes mountains. Both men and women in Peru have been consuming this superfood for centuries to improve energy, vitality, libido and fertility. Maca root has also been shown in modern days to be beneficial for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS and menopause.

Maca root nourishes and rejuvenates the endocrine (hormonal) system, thus balancing naturally the production of hormones in the body. Maca does not contain hormones. The balancing effect of maca on the hormones can positively affect any system in the body that is out of balance - hormones regulate and affect our mood, growth, sexual development, energy level, and tissue function.

Known as an adaptogen, Maca responds to different bodies' needs individually. Adaptogens increase immunity by gradually improving the overall ability of the entire body to take on challenging and stressful situations. Maca's energizing effect is due both to its rich nutritional content (proteins, vitamins, minerals, etc.) and its adaptogenic effect on the adrenal glands (part of the endocrine system).

Nature’s Superfoods’ Gelatinized Maca Root Powder is a special blend of yellow, red and black Maca roots, and hails from the high elevations of the Peruvian Andes. The certified organic maca roots are sun-dried (not oven-dried) before going through the process of gelatinization (under controlled temperature conditions) to break down the starch chains for easier digestion and absorption.

Gelatinised Maca Root Powder has a distinctive butterscotch-nutty taste and aroma (some people are fine with the taste, others are not). It has a slightly toasted aroma, as compared to Raw Maca Root Powder. Its main nutrients and active components are not heat- sensitive, so it can be used in both hot and cold recipes. Maca should be taken during day time, as night-time consumption may result in insomnia.

How to enjoy Gelatinixed Maca Root Powder :

1. Add maca powder directly to smoothies, yoghurt, juices, beverages, teas. The taste of Maca powder can go well (complementary) with cocoa drinks, coffee, nut milks (for example almond milk).

2. Bake into cakes/cookies.

3. Add into desserts or sweet treats.

As Gelatinixed Maca Powder and Raw Maca Powder are similar in taste and aroma, the recipes are interchangeable.

Recommended intake: 1/3 (one-third) to 1 teaspoon(4g) a day, for adults. Start with 1/3 teaspoon for the first few days to observe your body's response (a little can go a long way in the case of maca). Take 1-2 days off a week (or 1 week off a month) so that your body will remain responsive to maca's phytonutrients.

For children, they can take 1/3 (one-third) teaspoon of maca powder, not necessarily on a daily basis.

Maca may not be suitable for pregnant women, as with most other herbal supplements. Those who have thyroid conditions or want to avoid iodine, might want to avoid taking maca.
