This versatile ingredient is produced from the fibrous and nutritious flesh of the lucuma fruit, native to South America. The flesh is dried and ground to form this nutrient dense powder.
Organic raw lucuma powder has a subtle sweet caramel flavour and a smooth creamy texture which is enjoyed as a natural sweetener in smoothies, desserts and beverages.
Lucuma is an excellent source of carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals, and is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and low GI. Lucuma pronounced "loo-ku-mah" is referred to as "Gold of the Incas" and is often a centrepiece fruit in many traditional celebrations because of its extraordinary nutrient composition and distinct sweet flavour.
Store your lucuma powder in an airtight container in a dry place at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Avoid exposure to heat.
Lucuma is a great substitute for caramel, maple or butterscotch flavours in your favourite desserts. We recommend adding 1 tablespoon to your smoothie for a natural sweetness or sprinkle over your favourite toasted muesli! The recommended serving size is 1 tablespoon. As with all superfood powders, serving size is individual, you may prefer more or less. We recommend to start with the recommended daily amount, and gradually increase or decrease your daily consumption depending on individual wants.
