Maca has been harvested and used by humans in the Andean Mountains for centuries. Contrary to frequent claims that maca's cultivation was common in what is today Peru and Bolivia, it has been shown that until the late 1980s, maca has only been cultivated in a limited area around Lake Junin, in Central Peru.
In Peru, maca is prepared and consumed in several ways, although traditionally it is always cooked.
The growing demand of the supplement industry has been one of the primary reasons for maca's expansion. The prominent product is maca flour, which is ground from the hard, dried roots. In Peru, maca flour is used in baking as a base and a flavoring. The supplement industry uses both the dry roots and maca flour for different types of processing and concentrated extracts.
