WHAT IS LUCUMA?

Gold of the Incas

Do you like the sound of a superfood that is naturally sweet and incredibly good for you? Lucuma (pronounced loo-ku-mah) is an exotic Peruvian superfruit that has been eaten in South America since 200 AD - that’s over 2,000 years ago! This fruit offers a major nutrient hit - it contains 14 trace minerals, dietary fiber and potassium, just to name a few. Packed with an array of antioxidants including beta-carotene, Lucuma is known for supporting skin health, beauty and anti-aging. Lucuma pairs well with any recipe that requires natural sweetness while offering a low glycemic index and balancing blood sugar levels. Are you ready to try some loo-ku-mah? We source our Lucuma from small, family-owned farms, where the Lucuma fruit is hand-picked and gently milled at low temperatures to create a fine, sweet-tasting powder.
