 Product Description

organic-food-federation.pngLucuma somewhat resembles a mango and is sometimes known as eggfruit in English. It is highly nutritious containing carotene and B vitamins, vitamin B3 in particular. It has a sweet flavour and low glycemic index content making it a great health-conscious sweetener full of slow release energy.

Lucuma is great for baking with and is growing in popularity for its subtle, sweet flavour. Lucuma cheesecake is one of our favourites. It is also great to add to yoghurt, smoothies and other drinks.

Lucuma is native to the subtropical rainforest valleys of South America where the Andes and the Amazon meet. It is a common feature of indigenous artwork in Peru and was first documented by European invaders around 1531 in the Chinchasuyu region of the Inca Empira, an area that spanned much more Northern Peru and most of Ecuador.

*High street price is based on price in a well known high street health store. Price calculated as equivalent price per gram at time of writing and may change over time without us knowing. Where larger packs were not available on the high street total is calculated from purchasing multiple packs.

  1. Good product

    Posted by Cholocate friend on 28th Oct 2016

    Very good lucuma powder, fresh, smells and tastes good. On the packages outside is little bit too much powder/flour so you have to wipe it off, but the price is so good that its not big deal. Customer service is very good. Recommend and will buy more.
