About Our Organic Lucuma Powder

Lucuma (Loo-Ku-Mah) whole fruit powder is my favourite addition to my breakfast smoothie (see recipe here). It's got a rich, creamy texture and will turn your raw food creations into gourmet heavenly delights.

Sourced from farms in Pesco (central Peru), Lucuma is a raw gourmet, organic nutrient dense fruit. Dubbed the "Gold of Incas" this exotic Peruvian fruit is celebrated for its flagrant flavour.

Lucuma Fruit

Lucuma is a nutrient dense fruit from Peru. It smells divine, and tastes like maple syrup flavoured ice-cream! In Peru, the yellowy-orange fruit pulp is added to ice-cream and is Peru's favourite flavour.

This exotic Peruvian fruit is also known as the "Gold of the Incas", and is also one of the lost crops of the Incas. Peruvian culture is steeped in traditions rich in fine foods and cultural culinary delights. The Lucuma name has been honoured both spiritually and culinary since ancient times. Today, this fruit is still prominent in contemporary celebrations.

Lucuma powder is really versatile and tasty, blending easily and well with ice-creams, baby food, yogurt, pies, cakes, cookies, smoothies, chocolate bars and desserts of all kinds.

How to use Lucuma Powder:

Just add a spoonful to your favourite raw desserts, bars or smoothies. Make a coulis from Lucuma and raw agave nectar

How our Lucuma is processed?

Lucuma FruitOur Lucuma is grown on orchards in Peru. The evergreen trees produce greenish yellow flowers are throughout the year, and after being pollinated, the fruits mature on the tree for around 9 months. The Lucuma tree bears fruit throughout the year, but the main harvest occurs in the spring between January and April.



When the mature fruit falls from the Lucuma tree it isn't ripe and the pulp is too hard to be edible. The fruit must be stored under hay until the bitter white latex breaks down and it softens, however even when fully ripe the flesh remains relatively firm, and similar to pumpkin in texture. Lucuma can be eaten raw but is usually cooked and mixed with other foods to add flavour and sweetness.

To produce our lucuma powder, the ripe fruits are thoroughly washed and cut into small segments which are fully dehydrated, maintaining the temperature below 45°C. The dried fruit is then carefully milled into a fine powder which can be stored for up to 2 years, retaining its nutty caramel flavour. Our Lucuma powder is rigorously tested for microbial activity to ensure that the finished product is as pure and natural as possible.
