Gelatinized maca does not mean gelatin capsules or mixed with gelatin. It refers to the process the maca undergoes, a similar process to the purification of gelatin. The process removes starches and breaks down the bonds that bind the starch molecules to the amino acids and other compounds locked within.

This does two things, it removes starch (which comprises 33% of the maca plant) and leaves behind the chemicals and nutrients, therefore concentrating the important elements of the maca root. It also frees the macaenes and macatides from their starch bonds which human digestion cannot fully break, meaning the gelatinized maca will yield a much higher percentage of absorbed macaenes than non-gelatinized. How can you tell if the maca you are buying is gelatinized? The front of the package should say so. It's an expensive process so if a company is going to pay that much extra they're going to want to let people know they're buying the "good stuff".
