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?

With a naturally sweet caramel flavour, Lucuma powder is a great substitute for reducing refined sugar in baking recipes
Source of iron which contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
