Vegan friendly 3ROOT Maca:
Our maca is selected from the finest organically cultivated sun dried cream, purple and black roots. We use 80% black, 15% purple and just 5% of the cream roots as the black and purple macas have higher nutrient levels so you get a better product with quicker results.
Uniquely Pre - Cooked at less than 45 degrees
Sara’s Choice 3Root Maca grows at about 4,500 meters above sea level in the high Andean plateaus of Peru, an extremely cold, oxygen-poor environment with high winds and harsh sunlight. No other food plant exists in the world which will grow at this altitude. But the soils of these high plateaus are extremely rich in minerals, which accounts for the level of trace minerals found in Maca. Our Maca is grown to organic standards by Quechua-speaking Peruvian Indians, in the traditional way, using no pesticides and a long fallow period before replanting. The growers and processing plant are certified by SKAL International the global organic certifier. Indians of all ages who live in the high Andes eat Maca roots boiled or roasted. Maca boiled in water is sweeter than cocoa. In Huancayo, Maca puddings and jams are popular. It is important to note that Peruvians never eat the type of raw yellow Maca flour sold in some supermarkets and health stores.
