Dear Amazonas Team, we have been buying your Maca powder for years with conviction and discover time after time that it is the best powder available on the German market. Unlike other Maca mixes it tastes so good that we use it every day like a cocoa drink stirred in water. Many thanks to the whole team and your suppliers – please keep up the good work!
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.
