Product Description

What is it?

Organic lucuma powder is a natural sweetener prepared from the delicious Peruvian lucuma fruit. It contains a variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and fibre and makes a delicious addition to shakes, smoothies and protein drinks and is an ideal sugar substitute in desserts and cakes.

The lucuma is a subtropical fruit from the dry subtropical Andean coastal valleys of Peru; introduced later in Ecuador and Chile. It grows at elevations between 1000-2400 metres. Cajamarca, Ancash, Lima, and Ayacucho are the major areas in Peru grow lucuma trees. Lucuma has been found on ceramics at burial sites of the indigenous people of coastal Peru. The Moche people had a fascination with agriculture and often chose to represent fruits and vegetables, including lucuma, in their art.


How to use?

Lucuma fruit powder has a distinctively sweet and fragrant taste that provides a natural sweetening to desserts without increasing your blood sugar levels, unlike many sweeteners that offer empty calories. A healthy alternative to sugar, lucuma powder may be useful for diabetics and people with other health issues. Lucuma fruit powder can be added to any beverage, smoothie, yogurt, granola, pudding or pastry. Lucuma powder is ideal for making gourmet ice cream products, nutritional supplements and functional beverages because it helps combine and emulsify fats and oils with sugars and polysaccharides. You can use lucuma powder in baking cakes, cookies and pies to fortify the nutritional content of your dessert. Lucuma also makes healthy baby food. As with any food supplement, always consult with your doctor before altering your diet.

For every 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, substitute 2 tablespoons of lucuma powder for optimal results. Even though you are using more lucuma powder than you would sugar, the glycemic index number is still so low, it makes lucuma a far healthier substitute.
