What is the difference between Raw Maca Root Powder and Gelatinized Maca Root Powder?
Gelatinization refers to the method of quickly cooking maca roots to break down the starch chains – this process makes maca’s unique hormonal-balancing phytochemicals more bioavailable (more easily digested by the body). The precooked (gelatinized) maca roots are then cooled and milled. Gelatinized Maca Root powder is still 100% pure maca root (with nothing else added); it is more concentrated than Raw Maca Root Powder as part of the moisture is removed during the gelatinization process.
