Quality & Provenance

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 at – 45°C. 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.

Why is it good for me?

  1. With a naturally sweet caramel flavour, a great substitute for reducing refined sugar in baking recipes
  2. Source of iron which contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  3. Contains potassium which contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and the maintenance of normal blood pressure
  4. Rich in fibre

Customer Reviews

You must try this quality (Naturya lucuma powder)

This lucuma powder is one of the best I have ever tried. I use it a lot in my morning smoothies and of course in my homemade chocolate. When I put it in my desserts it gives them the subtle sweet taste, almost like eating some dried apple and banana together (but not so sweet). Also, in Croatia, it is not always easy to get good quality ''superfoods'' (raw, fine blend, organic...), so I am grateful to Naturya company for such a great touch of South America (Peru) in my country.
