Frequently Asked Questions
What is gelatinization? Is it vegan?
Gelatinization is a water heating process that involves maca root. This short contact with heat helps to break down starch bonds, making it easier for your body to digest and assimilate. 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), so you do not lose any nutritional properties by baking with it. It is easy to give baked goods a nutrient boost by replacing 1/3 of the flour in a recipe for powdered Vega Maca.
I just ate a whole Vega Maca Chocolate Bar and can’t sleep. Why?
For some people Vega Maca is very energizing. Vega Maca Chocolate Bar contains 4,000mg of maca per bar as well as chocolate, which naturally contains caffeine. If you are sensitive to either maca or caffeine, it is best not to consume Vega Maca Chocolate Bar before bed.
