Maca is a potent superfood root from the Andes Mountains of Peru that has been prized for centuries by indigenous cultures due to its ability to nourish, increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue. It is a complex, nutrient-dense whole food that is a good source of vitamins, amino acids, plant sterols, essential minerals, and essential fatty acids. Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder has a nutty butterscotch flavor that blends well in a variety of recipes.

The maca root is a common food among people in mountainous regions of Peru where it is often boiled and sliced — similar to potato chips. It’s also used there as a gruel with milk and is often cooked with potatoes, apples, oats, quinoa, or fava beans. A popular preparation of maca is ‘watia’, a traditional method of cooking with a hole dug underground and filled with layers of maca and hot coals to roast the roots.
