Description

Here’s some info from BBC Good Food

Maca is a cruciferous vegetable that is native to Peru, and is related to broccoli, cauliflower and kale. The root, which is the edible part of the vegetable, looks similar to a cross between a parsnip and a radish with green leaf tops, but it is usually consumed as a ground powder and its taste is quite earthy and nutty.

Maca is often touted as a ‘superfood’ because of its strong nutritional profile. It contributes certain minerals including potassium and calcium as well as some B vitamins including B3 (niacin).

Maca powder is also a good vegan source of iron with just one 5g teaspoon providing almost 10% of the RDA for men and women over 50 years old, and 5% RDA for women aged 19-50 years old (NHS figures).

One teaspoon (5g) of maca powder also contains about 20% of the RDA of copper for adults.

Root grown in Peru.
