removes starches and breaks down the bonds that bind the starch
molecules to the amino acids and other compounds locked within. Gelatinized
Imperial Gold Maca™ is produced
at the National University of Agriculture, La Molina, Peru and is
recognized as the main source of Gelatinized Maca. The university is an
agricultural teaching college with students from all over the world
including South America.
