Vega® Maca

What is gelatinization? Is it vegan?

Gelatinization is a cooking process that involves maca root. This short contact with heat helps to break down starch bonds, similar to how cooking a potato makes it more edible. Gelatinization is vegan and has nothing to do with gelatin.

Can I cook with Vega Maca?

Yes. Vega Maca is gelatinized (meaning it’s been heat treated already). You can replace 1/3 of the flour in a recipe for powdered Vega Maca.
