Maca (Lepidium Meyenii Walp) is a root that grows only in the Andean highlander zones of Peru, on the Junin Plateau, at altitudes of 4,250 m above sea level (approx. 14,000 ft), in a region of intense sunlight, winds and below freezing temperatures – where no other crops survive.
The Maca plant was domesticated about 2,000 years ago. Primitive cultivars of maca have been found in archaeological sites dating back as far as 1,600 BC. The Incas used it among their people as part of their daily diet.
The plant is grown from seed and root maturation generally occurs within seven months. Its appearance may be described as a shrub with a low-growing, mat-like stem arrangement, small, off-white flowers, and scalloped leaves. The root can be one of several colors (cream, purple or black) and is of comparable shape to a turnip or radish.
Ideal for drinks, baking and food preparations.
Maca is a great addition to smoothies and protein shakes. Add a teaspoon to boost flavor and nutritional values.
Try adding some maca powder to cake, muffin or bread, or other baked goods. Maca can be added to other meals, cooked or cold.
