Maca Powder has an earthy, malty flavor and a sweet caramel or butterscotch-like aroma that makes it an ideal mix-in for smoothies. It is also a welcome addition to juice, coconut water, yogurt or ice cream. Maca pairs well with cacao. Maca is a root vegetable in the same family as turnips and radishes, as well as the above-ground vegetables broccoli and kale. The root has been cultivated in the Andes region of Peru for centuries. Archæological evidence suggests maca may have been grown as early as 1600 B.C., with written references appearing for the first time in the 1500s. Now, Peru is a leading producer of maca powder and the root is shipped and used worldwide.
