How do I use it?

Quality & Provenance

Quality & Provenance:

Our Lucuma is sourced from the Peruvian department of Haunuco. When mature fruit falls from the lucuma tree it isn’t ripe, and the pulp too hard to eat. The fruit must be stored under hay to break down the bitter, white latex and softens. However even when fully ripe the flesh remains relatively firm. Ripe fruit is then thoroughly washed and cut into small segments which are fully dehydrated, with the Lucuma’s temperature reaching no higher than 45C°, ensuring its nutrients are not denatured. It’s then carefully milled into a fine powder, which can be stored for two years, retaining its nutty, caramel flavour.

Our Lucuma powder is rigorously tested for microbial activity, guaranteeing a natural product of exceptional purity.
