Live Superfoods Lucuma Powder, 12 oz
Lucuma fruits are found in Peru, where they have been honored since the time of the Incas. Today, South Americans enjoy their fragrant, rich maple-like flavor in a variety of culinary creations.
Lucuma powder has a sweet and fragrant taste, and is a healthy alternative to sugar. Because it can add sweetness without increasing blood sugar levels, Lucuma powder can be useful for those with diabetes. Our organic lucuma powder can be used as a flour in cooked and raw pies, cakes, pastries, and food bars. It can also be added to smoothies, energy drinks, and nut milk.
Lucuma, pronounced “loo-ku-mah,” belongs to the Sapotaceae family. Its fruits look like round green avocados but have firm, orange and yellow pumpkin-like pulp. They are an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and contain especially high concentrations of beta carotene, niacin, and iron. Lucuma provides 14 essential trace elements, including potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. For centuries, Lucuma has been used in South America for its medicinal properties. Studies show that Lucuma promoted tissue regeneration, and may have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and skin repair effects.
