Because of its natural sweetness, lucuma is a wonderful alternative to refined sugars, as it has a low glycemic level and is the perfect addition to low sugar recipes.
Known as the ‘Gold of Incas’, because the Incas prized it for providing longevity and fertility.
We love lucuma for its flavour, but in addition, it also is a fantastic source of nutrients including antioxidants, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, and protein.
