Maca is a small root vegetable that’s been cultivated and enjoyed for centuries by the indigenous population of the Andes. Only growing at altitudes of over 3500 metres maca thrives in inhospitable terrain. Dug out in spring the root of the maca plant is dried under the sun and milled into a powder. It is said that Incan warriors used to consume maca to increase their strength and stamina during battle.
