  • Thank you for these answers – I learnt something!

  • Yes, thanks so much for asking this.

  • Learnt something reading these answers!

  • Wow. Never heard of it. Thanks for clarifying.

  • Thanks jazbright. I’ve heard if maca powder and never realised where it came from. Now I see it what it is before it becomes the powder. Loving the superfoods!

  • What sort of recipe asks for this powder? Guessing it’s expensive too?

  • I wish it was a cheeseburger! haha.
    Joking aside, the superfoods powders are brilliant for boosting your healthy eating. Instead of using supplements and meal replacements, you can make your eating clean and healthy with the superfoods


  • Thanks for this question I think I saw the same recipe. I’ll stop thinking about cheeseburgers now

  • Maca is a real food see? Forgot to add pic below :)

  • Maca is not a supplement it is a REAL FOOD. related to the radish & found in Peru available mostly on powder form. It is Rich in B C & E Calcium Zinc Iron Magnesium Phosphorous & amino acids & restores red blood cells.
    Alot of just discovered “super foods” are being called supplements & they are not that. It’s just more bang for your buck just like spinach was & when mushrooms became the “meat for vegetarians”.

  • This had me intrigued – then I read health food thing – nope, will stick to real food!!

  • Its a supplement powder, has protein, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, its a health food thing.

  • yes thanks from me also! it would not hurt to try it

  • Thanks everybody now I know. I think that can be left out of my recipes1
