So I got clearance from my boss to hike the Inca Trail, overnight on an island, wander through the amazon, all because I was "searching" for a product to bring back from Peru.
Phew! Did I get lucky! The Peruvians along the trail had a product I could bring back home to the brass and not get fired.
From the Mountains of Peru we present Maca root - it has been used by the indigenous to that region due to it's claimed health benefits like improving skin complexion, increasing energy, and being rich in vitamins. Chock full of amino acids, plant sterols, essential minerals, and essential fatty acids - our Organic Maca Root Powder gives off a malted taste, reminiscent of toasted oats and butterscotch - it is a flavor that can be used in a variety of recipes.
Though there are no serious known side effects of Maca, like any other supplement, it should not be taken in large amounts.
Our USDA Organic Gelatinized Maca Root Powder is certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and verified Gluten-Free.
This vegan sahlab tastes close to the original custardy drink that’s popular in the Middle East. Scented with rose water and flavored with mastic, it’s the perfect warm drink for a chilly day.
