Peruvian Superfoods

Alex

In September 2016, Alex Smith the founder of Superfoods Wholesale visited the Maca farm in Huancavelica, Peru to see how our Maca is grown and harvested. Our maca is planted in the highlands of Ccarahuasa, 4000-5200 meters above sea level. Maca can only be grown here due to its low temperatures.




Maca being harvested

Our current stock comes from a farmer named Enrique Torres. He rents the land from a native Quechua community named “Angeles de Ccarahuasa” In return, Mr. Torres employs most of the community generating a positive economic impact to the region.




Maca Colourful

Our maca is a blend of several different colors, in comparison to many companies selling single color maca (yellow). There is research showing increased nutritional benefits to coloured maca. Also known as Peruvian Ginseng, Maca Powder is revered for its endurance enhancing and endocrine-system regulating properties. In fact, it is known to have been used by the Incan warriors (hundreds of years ago!) to give them stamina before heading to battle.


A member of the radish family, the Maca root is also a source of calcium, potassium, selenium, magnesium, iodine, copper and zinc.


Our Maca Powder is grown high up in the Andes Mountains to ensure optimal conditions for a high quality, organic maca harvest.


With its malty caramel flavour, Maca Powder is ideal for smoothies, healthy desserts, breakfast bowls, raw chocolate, dressings and more.
