Maca root powder is typically used as a flour to make cookies, flan, smoothies, and porridge. Although maca root is often employed in culinary applications, it also has a rich tradition of use as a panacea and is referred to as Peruvian ginseng. Maca is highly appreciated for its adaptogenic and nutritious properties. Maca Root Powder is high in protein, dietary fiber, many important minerals, and amino acids (containing 19 different amino acids). The root was introduced to North America, Europe, and Japan in the late 1990’s and it has remained a popular botanical since.
