Details:

Our Maca Root Chips are the closest to whole Maca roots that can legally be exported from Peru. That’s because Maca is considered a “heritage product” of Peru and the Peruvian government does not allow whole roots to be exported to avoid them being planted in other countries. (Read more about why that’s important here)

Maca Root Chips are simply Maca roots cut into small chunks after being washed and dried. Our chips are pre-cooked (gelatinized) to ease digestion and to make them simpler to consume. Traditionally, dried Maca roots are boiled with water or milk and sugar to make a hearty porridge called Mazamorra. You can prepare Maca chips the same way or experiment with other ways of making them.

 

Preparation ideas for whole Maca root chips

  1. Simmer ½ cup of Macachips for about an hour and add to oatmeal or other warm breakfast cereal
  2. Simmer ½ cup of Maca chips for about an hour and add them to a smoothie
  3. Steep Maca chips in hot water for 10 minutes to make a tea – add sweetener as desired
  4. Try the traditional Mazamorra recipe – this makes for a hearty meal!

 

  • Ingredients:
    • 1 cup (130g) Maca chips
    • 1 cup (130g) flour
    • ¼ cup (32g) sugar
    • 2 cups (250ml) milk
    • Clove, cinnamon and/or anis to taste
    • 4 cups (500 ml) water
  • Preparation: Simmer the Maca chips in water along with spices until soft (about 1 hour), adding water if necessary.   Add flour, sugar and milk and simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy. Mazamorra may be kept in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.

 

Best Used For:

Gelatinized Sundried Heritage Harvest Maca is the traditional blend of 3 Maca colors and a great way to get started with Maca. Since it requires less work to sort the roots by color, this Maca is less expensive than others. Yet, it contains Black, Red and Yellow Maca, thereby offering benefits of all three.   We recommend it for:

  • Men and women wanting to consume the traditional blend of Maca colors
  • Athletes, both men and women, looking for extra stamina and strength
  • Anyone looking to improve memory, concentration and focus skills with Maca
  • All people taking Maca to improve their bone strength and density

 

Storage/Shelf Life:

Maca keeps well for up to 24 months provided that it is stored in a sealed bag out of direct sunlight and at below 70% humidity. 

Suggested Use:

1-3 teaspoons mixed in water, juice or smoothies daily.
