Maca is a heart shaped root vegetable of the Brassicaceae (cruciferous) family that looks like a radish but grows like a sweet potato -- the colour varies from creamy yellow or light pink to dark purple or black. Maca's botanical name is Lepidium meyenii,Walpers (after German botanist Gerhard Walpers) and is also known as Lepidium peruvianum,Chacon after Peruvian researcher Dr. Gloria Chacon. The taste has been described variously as vanilla/nutty or butterscotch. It tastes particularly good in 'milky' blends like yoghurt and muesli; cereal and milk; or smoothies. Try baking with it and freezing the extra for a nutritional boost when you need it most! Power Super Foods Maca Powder is fresh milled to order then climate controlled shipped from Peru.
