What is Maca ?

Native to the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains, maca is a plant that belongs to the Cruciferous family such as watercress and broccoli. The plant’s roots—maca roots—have been used by the Incas and Peruvians as medicine for over 3,000 years. Maca roots look much like a robust radish or turnip. It has an earthy, nutty taste and an aroma akin to butterscotch which is why it was also considered an important vegetable crop by the ancients.

Maca is divided into varieties based on the colour of its roots: yellow, red, blue, green, gray and black. The red, black and yellow roots are the predominant varieties available today.
