“I was possibly the first person in the world to put this wonderful superfruit powder up on the Internet. A love affair began back then, and has continued ever since. I grow the trees and have traversed lucuma growing regions of Peru— the lucuma tree itself can live over 500 years. Lucuma is a longevity food. How do I use lucuma? I blend it into smoothies, desserts, hot chocolates, mochas and cold refreshments. Lucuma is a low glycemic sweetener powder and a perfect emulsifier as it draws together and builds a texture-flavour bridge between fats and sugars. The fresh fruit is close in flavour and texture to the dried fruit powder as well. The dried flavour is almost preferable to the fresh.” ~ David Wolfe

Lucuma (pronounced loo-coo-mah) is an exotic, slightly sweet melt-in-your-mouth subtropical fruit. Lucuma (Pouteria lucuma) is a widely-grown and loved fruit found in the Andes of Peru and even some areas of Chile now in South America. Lucuma’s unique taste reminds of maple, monkfruit, caramel and the best notes of butterscotch. This exquisite flavour profile has made lucuma powder an additive to nearly every ice cream product in South America. Lucuma powder is often added to smoothies or used in puddings, creams, baked goods and just about anything you make that you want to taste good.

Lucuma is rich in fiber and beta-carotene. For a fruit, Lucuma is a good source of phosphorus, potassium, zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium and vitamins B2 and B3 as well as vitamin C. Lucuma powder is both a delicious and, at the same time, nourishing superfood.

Lucuma is a wonderful superfruit native to the cool highlands of the coastal valleys of Peru and now also grows in parts of Chile. In Peru, this delightful fruit is often called by its ancient name: “Lucma”.

Lucuma has been used as a super fruit in the Andes mountains of South America for thousands of years by ancient civilizations including the Moche and the Inca. Its ability to make nearly anything taste good is practically unmatched by any fruit known.

Lucuma (Pouteria lucuma) has numerous famous fruits as close relatives, including the canistel group (Pouteria campechiana or eggfruits) and mamey sapote (Pouteria sapota), the fruit of Cuba.

Lucuma powder is made by drying ripe lucuma fruits at a low temperature and then gently grinding them up into an easy-to-use powder.

Ingredients: Organic Lucuma Powder ONLY.

Lucuma is a great source of energy. With its low glycemic qualities, yet its calories, it is a unique hybrid.

Lucuma’s  main antioxidant is beta-carotene from which it derives its dull coloration.
