Lucuma fruit powder has recently burst onto the world stage. That’s because this dried fruit is so sweet that it can be used as a low-glycemic sweetener. It’s also considered a “superfood” because it contains high levels of vitamins and minerals, including beta carotene and B-complex vitamins.
Native to the Andean Mountains in Peru, the lucuma fruit has been eaten there for centuries. The flesh of the fruit, which is naturally dry, even in its fresh state, is said to taste like a cross between maple syrup and a sweet potato. It is a popular flavor for ice cream in that region.
Nativas Naturals Lucuma Powder is USDA certified organic, and contains eight-ounces of dried lucuma fruit. The company recommends adding it to yogurt, smoothies, baked goods and desserts.Buy Now
