Maca has been around for over two thousand years, and has been used by the Spanish and Quecha inhabitants of Peru. It was used as one of the staples for food and trade during the ancient times. Over the years, products derived from Maca have been also popular. One of the most popular preparations for the plant is the Maca flour, which is used as a flour base or as an added flavoring.

It is also rich in minerals including manganese, calcium, potassium, copper, iron, and zinc.
