More about the Lucuma Fruit

The Lucuma fruit tree, or “La Lucuma”, originally comes from the dry, subtropical region of the Peruvian Andean coastal valleys. It now also grows in Ecuador and Chile at elevations between 1,000 to 2,400 metres above sea level. While the fresh fruit remains difficult to source outside of its local region, it is now readily available in dried powder form. And it’s this that has proven most popular across the UK and Europe.

Lucuma flavour and nutrition

The tree’s nutritious, round, orange-centred fruit is becoming well known for its unique style of sweetness, especially among raw food lovers. It also boasts especially high concentrations of calcium, phosphorus, beta-carotene, vitamins, fibre, iron and various other valuable nutrients.  In terms of the lucuma fruit’s sugar content, the percentage amount present in the dried pulp from mature lucuma fruit is: 8.4% glucose, 4.7% fructose, 1.7% sucrose, and 0.06% inositol.

A wholesome natural sweetener

In its raw powder form, lucuma can be used as a natural and very nutritious sweetener, and it is an excellent flavouring for ice cream and smoothies.  Lucuma fruit powder can also be used to sweeten cooked deserts such as cakes, chocolate, pancakes and oatmeal.
 
Made from the pulverised dried fruit, our nutritious organic raw lucuma powder has a pleasantly sweet taste often described as rich, creamy and malty. Of course, it’s also fully vegetarian and vegan-friendly and a great substitute for less healthy high GI and high GL sweeteners.

Safety guidelines

As with all sweet goods and sugary foods, please take care to moderate your intake to a reasonable degree. We highly recommend supplementing this with quality carbohydrates, fibre, protein and other all-important diet components.

And finally… enjoy!
