Organic Lucuma Powder
Hailed as the “The Gold of the Incas”, the Lucuma fruit is a rich source of antioxidants, dietary fiber, healthy carbohydrates, essential trace minerals, B vitamins and beta-carotene. Around four kilograms of fresh fruit are needed for every kilogram of Lucuma powder, so Lucuma powder is extremely rich in nutrients. When milled into powder, Lucuma is made denser in nutrients but contains lesser calories than the fruit itself. Powdered Lucuma is also a great source of calcium and potassium. All the vitamins and minerals in Lucuma are essential nutrients that you should be consuming on a daily basis and it supports healthy skin and hair, increases energy levels and alertness.
Terrasoul’s Lucuma powder is certified-organic and is made only from whole Peruvian Lucuma fruits grown on small family-owned organic farms. The Lucuma fruits are tree-ripened, hand-picked then dried at low temperatures and milled into a fine powder to preserve its vital nutrients.
Consuming Lucuma powder is an excellent and tasty way to get a boost of vitamins and antioxidants, load up on healthy carbs and B vitamins. With its light butterscotch and maple-like undertones, Lucuma powder is a delightful replacement for sweeteners in desserts, smoothies, and other sweet treats!
Here are some ways to explore your Lucuma Powder – add it into your favourite ice cream, whizz up a smoothie or use it to make a delicious caramel-like sauce. Lucuma powder also pairs well with other favourite treats like cheesecake.
