Having been discovered centuries ago in Peru, its popularity is now growing significantly in Europe.
For centuries, maca, a tuberous plant, has been eaten by Peruvians. This highly nutritious product grows at 4,000 meters in the Peruvian Andes and is still picked by hand. For several years, maca, especially in powder form, has also been very popular in North America and Europe.
