Maca (lepidium meyenii) is also called Peruvian ginseng. This is an herbaceous biennial plant native to the Andes Mountains in Peru. The crop was first cultivated about 2,000 years ago. Maca grows at altitudes above 3,800 metres on rocky ground. Maca grows well at temperatures up to -10 degrees Celsius. Maca is mainly grown for consumption of the root. The Maca root varies greatly in size and shape. There are three different types of maca, namely yellow, red and black maca, the most commonly used being the yellow maca.
Maca is a tuberous plant, which the Spanish used to give their horses on the advice of the Incas. This helped the animals regain their strength in no time.
In the Junín region of Peru, maca is consumed in large quantities. It is a readily available and highly nutritious source of food. It is eaten fresh with meat, cooked in underground ovens lined with hot stones (pachamancas), or dried before being cooked into a porridge in milk. A particular drink made from maca is popularly called 'maca chica'. Another use is grinding the dried root into maca flour for baking.
Processing Maca Powder
The maca seed is sown in September, about a month before the rainy season begins. The sowing is done in the early morning so that the strong winds on the mountain sides are avoided. After sowing, the seeds are buried using branches, or sheep are released into the field to kick them into the ground. After 260 to 280 days, the plants are ripe for harvesting. The roots are harvested and left in the sun for 10-15 days until they are dried.
The dried maca roots can be stored for up to seven years. These dry roots are then ground into a fine powder, the colour of the powder is beige.
Benefits of Maca
