About our organic lucuma powder

lucuma-fruitLucuma fruit powder (pronounced ‘loo-koo-mah’) is made from organic lucuma fruit grown on farms in central Peru. Our lucuma powder is raw and has a sweet, creamy taste and a delicate aroma similar to caramel or maple syrup. It mixes incredibly well with chocolate, cacao and maca!

Due to its natural sweetness lucuma is a wonderful healthier alternative to refined sugars as its a low glycemic sweetener- the perfect addition to a low or no sugar recipe. It is also known as the ‘Gold of Incas’, as it was so highly prized amongst the Incas for providing longevity and fertility.

Lucuma is not only prized for its flavour, it is also a fantastic source of nutrients including antioxidants, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, and protein.
