Maca is a heart shaped root vegetable of the Brassicaceae (cruciferous) family that looks like a radish but grows like a sweet potato and varies in colour. It is considered the most sacred offering from the Inca tribes nourishing all who consume it with a massive array of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids.
The taste has been described variously as vanilla/nutty or butterscotch. It can be mixed into smoothies, and milky beverages, protein balls and muesli.
Grown at high altitudes in severe weather conditions with barely any vegetation, it endures very harsh climates. The Peruvians believe that it is these conditions that give Maca it’s unique properties. And science has shown the more duress a plant is under the more diverse the properties.
