From pristine lands

Our Maca is organically grown in a region totally untouched by modern chemical farming techniques or polluting industrial activity: the pristine Junin valley of the Andes mountains, 14,500 feet above sea level. Essential Living Foods' Premium Maca is a blend of three different maca varieties (black, red, and yellow) for an increased spectrum of nutritional benefits.

Processed with care

This product is a blend of carefully sun-dried roots from three different maca varieties (black, red, and yellow) for an increased spectrum of nutritional benefits and flavors, along with a healthy boost of our premium-processed maca. The major difference between our premium maca and our other varieties is that it is not sun-dried before processing. Instead it is pureed and dehydrated, creating a much more potent (and spicy) powder with higher concentrations of glucosinolates, macamides, and macaenes.

They are immediately fresh-processed into a paste, using a proprietary process that protects the raw materials from oxidation. The paste is then dried into a powder in a low-temperature dryer in order to retain as many enzymes and nutrients as possible.

This premium, high-potency powder is than blended with the other three standard varieties to bring you a well-balanced and effective product you can't get anywhere else.

Fair and safe

Few people know that root vegetables (like Maca) can pick up heavy metals from the soil if not rotated properly; which is why our partners carefully and systematically rotate the Maca fields, avoiding this issue entirely. Essential Living Foods’ partner is the only grower we know who’s doing this.

We honor the work of everyone who works to bring this amazing food to your table, so our farming partners and processors are paid fairly. By purchasing this product, you are helping to support sustainable, organic, family-owned farms, both in Peru and around the world.
