Maca is a low herbaceous plant native to the high Andes regions of Peru. It is cultivated due to the thickened roots, which can be used for various purposes - such as vegetables or in domestic medicine. Locals in Peru have been using it for thousands of years and was named ''Peruvian ginseng'' due to its nutritional and medicinal properties. Maca is a very resistant plant and grows in harsh conditions at altitudes between 3500 and 4500 meters. It is exposed to the harsh weather conditions, strong sunlight, extreme cold and high values of UV light. The seeds are sown in the beginning of the rainy season and the plant reaches full age of about 8 months after sowing.
Bufo organic Maca is processed by traditional method, where the first three months, maca is being covered overnight to prevent moisture damage and then drying in the sun. In doing so, leaves remain on the plant until it is dry, because in this way we are gaining the taste. Then it is cut into pieces and further dried at a temperature lower than 45Â°C, then the plant is suitable for grinding.
