Product information

Maca, or Lepidium meyenii, grows in the Andes at altitudes of over 4000 metres. In such harsh conditions plants have to be very efficient at absorbing nutrients from the soil. This is why Maca has been part of diets in its native areas for millennia.

While local cuisine uses the whole plant, Rainforest Foods Maca root powder is made of the fused root and hypocotyl (lower stem), where nutrients are concentrated. Rainforest Foods Maca is a mix of red, yellow, purple and black roots. It is grown organically in Peru using traditional techniques and has a long growing period of up to eight months. After harvesting, it is slowly air dried before being milled to a powder.

This is really good. Add it to banana bread or any bread when baking, it adds a beautiful caramel flavour. Probably don't put it in porridge? Or if you do, put it in as you're cooking it. Maca is delicious when incorporated properly.

Absolutely disgusting.

I cant eat this stuff. It ruined my porridge. It has an earthy taste which makes me wretch. Even a teaspoon in water is vile. Bad buy. I will just eat carrots and parsnips in future if I want roots.
