Maca powder for industrial use, for the food industry:
Suitable for production of cereal bars or adding to confectionery such as chocolate, fitness drinks, food replacement, vitamin capsules or tablets.
Sliced Maca roots are pressed through an extruder (two counter-rotating threaded screws), whereby the starch chains (Maca consists of approx. 80% carbohydrates) are broken and shortened. This process is called gelatinisation. The Maca pieces are then dried at low temperature before being ground into a natural, 100% pure powder.
