Lucuma (Pouteria obovata, or Lucuma obovata), is a sweet exotic fruit with an orange colored creamy pulp similar to cheesecake. Native to the sub-tropical mountain regions of South America this beautiful tree has been honored by the indigenous people for their nutritious and delicious qualities over many centuries.
We offer a powder derived from organic full ripened Lucuma fruits, with full bodied sweet fragrant taste. It is considered a natural alternative to regular sweeteners in smoothies, puddings, ice cream, pastries, and pies. It can serve as a partial substitute for wheat flour in cakes and pastries.
Lucuma is low in acid, and an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, especially B3, and minerals. It is especially abundant in beta-carotene, niacin and iron with significant amounts of calcium and phosphorus
