Navitas Naturals Lucuma Power Lucuma Powder Certified Organic Incan Superfood - 8 oz (227 g)

Lucuma is native to the highlands of Peru, Chile, and Ecuador where it has been cultivated since ancient times. Today, lucuma is one of the regions most enjoyed foods, and is a popular ice cream flavor among Europeans and South Americans. A wonderful sweetener that is chock-full of maple-like flavor, a little Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder blended into a smoothie, ice cream, pudding or pie filling makes for a truly delicious experience. And though lucuma is most famous for it’s sweet flavor profile, its impressively low sugar content and naturally occurring vitamins and minerals make it the perfect compromise between the sweet tooth and the waistline.

Source and Processing Navitas Naturals Lucuma is grown in the Oxapampa region of the Peruvian Andes. Here, the fruit naturally falls to the ground at maturity, but still needs several days to fully ripen and peak in flavor. After a patient wait, the fruit is peeled, pitted, dehydrated, and lastly milled into a fine whole fruit powder. This product has only one ingredient – whole Lucuma fruit – and is raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% organic.

Lucuma (loo-ku-mah ) a sweet and edible fruit of the Lucuma tree (Pouteria obovata, or Lucuma obovata), resembling a persimmon in appearance.

Gold of the Incas
The orange and yellow pulp of this exotic, sweet fruit was once hailed the “Gold of the Incas,” where it has been cultivated since ancient times. A native to the highlands of Peru, Chile, and Ecuador, the fruit of the beautiful evergreen lucuma tree has been honored spiritually as well as in cuisine due to it’s exquisite composition. Today, lucuma continues to enjoy enormous popularity in its native lands, and in some countries is actually favored over classics like chocolate and vanilla as an ice cream flavor. Navitas Naturals offers lucuma in a whole fruit powder form that makes incorporating it into delicious recipes a dream.

The Power of Lucuma
Lucuma is considered a healthy alternative sweetener as it lends a sweet taste to recipes, but is very low in sugars. With naturally occurring beta-carotene, niacin, and iron, lucuma powder is a welcome antidote to notorious “empty calorie” sweeteners.

Whole Fruit Sweetener
Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder has a distinctively sweet fragrance and full-bodied, maple-like taste. A deliciously versatile dessert ingredient, lucuma blends well to make alluring smoothies, puddings, and ice creams, and can also be used as a flour in exotic pies and pastries

Benefits:

  • Alternative Sweetener
  • Antioxidants
  • Nutrient-Rich
  • Naturally Sweet
  • Carotene

DID YOU KNOW?
In coastal Peru, archaeologists have frequently found lucuma depicted on ceramics during excavations of ancient burial sites -- sites which date back thousands of years. No doubt the lucuma tree’s unique ability to produce fruit year round -- combined with its deep drought resistant roots – have made it an important tree of life for cultures both past and present.
