The Lucuma fruit has been honored both spiritually and culinary since ancient times in the Peruvian culture. Today, lucuma is one of the regions most enjoyed foods, and is a popular ice cream flavor among Europeans and South Americans. A wonderfully versatile sweetener that is chock-full of maple-like flavor, a little lucuma powder blended into a smoothie, ice cream, pudding or pie filling makes for a truly delicious experience. And though lucuma is most famous for its sweet flavor profile, its impressively low sugar content and naturally occurring vitamins and minerals make it the perfect compromise between the sweet tooth and the waistline. Raw organic Lucuma is especially abundant in beta-carotene, niacin and iron with significant amounts of calcium and phosphorus.

Lucuma naturally falls to the ground at maturity, but still needs several days to fully ripen and peak in flavor. After a patient wait, the fruit is peeled, pitted, dehydrated and finally milled into a fine whole fruit powder. This product has only one ingredient: whole Lucuma fruit and is raw, organic, and gluten-free.

Raw organic Lucuma is an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It has lots of beta-carotene, niacin (B3) and iron.

Discover the flavorful sensation of lucuma. Enjoy it by itself or mix it in your favorite treat. Try combining it with some raw cacao nibs, vanilla beans, coconut butter and blend into a creamy delight.

Suggested Use: Mix 1 tablespoon with recipes, yogurt, ice cream or smoothies.
