Organic Lucuma Powder

From the valleys of Peru comes a fruit known as the ‘Gold of the Incas’, revered by the ancients for its delicious flavour and nutrient density. It is said to be safe for diabetics due to its low GI score.

The bright yellow lucuma fruit has a dry flesh rich in vitamins and essential trace minerals. Its tasty flavour and aroma are hard to describe or compare to any other. Unlike most fruits, its texture is dry, quite starchy and with a paste-like consistency that melts in your mouth.

The combination of complex carbohydrates, minerals and fibre make it an excellent low-glycemic addition to recipes.
