WHAT EXACTLY IS MACA POWDER?
Maca powder has worked its way into the fitness industry’s healthy cooking recipes over the past few years, but it’s been used around the world for centuries. Ancient civilisations knew it was a valuable and unique source of vitamins, minerals, and protein. To make maca powder, we take natural raw maca root, put it through a gentle drying process, and mill it to a fine powder.
BULK POWDERS® Maca Powder is 100% pure powdered maca root. It is naturally gluten free and suitable for vegans. Maca powder is a low GI carbohydrate which is also high in protein (12g per 100g). In fact, it is a complete protein and contains all the essential amino acids. Maca is rich in key vitamins and minerals, and actually has 3 times more Vitamin C than an orange, 5 times more iron than spinach, and twice the calcium of milk!
As a low GI carbohydrate, maca is digested slowly in the body giving you a longer release of energy. This makes it a great ingredient for breakfast (it tastes great in oatmeal) or shakes.
