Lucuma powder

Explore the sweet subtlety of lucuma powder, a natural superfood from the Andes, beloved for its unique maple-like flavor and rich nutritional benefits.

Product Information


Lucuma powder, derived from the fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree native to South America, particularly Peru, is an ancient superfood known for its natural sweetness and unique flavor profile. Often described as having a taste similar to maple or caramel, lucuma powder is made by drying and grinding the ripe fruit into a fine, yellowish powder. Nutritionally, lucuma powder is a treasure trove. It is rich in carbohydrates, particularly natural sugars, providing a healthy energy source. It also contains essential nutrients like beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium, and protein. These elements contribute to lucuma's health benefits, which include boosting immunity, supporting skin health, and providing a source of antioxidants. Lucuma powder is highly regarded in the culinary world for its versatility and natural sweetness. It is used as a healthier alternative to refined sugar in desserts, smoothies, yogurt, and baked goods. Its ability to impart a sweet flavor without spiking blood sugar levels makes it popular among those seeking to reduce their sugar intake.
