Lucuma Powder is made from whole Peruvian lucuma fruit that has been dried at low temperatures and milled into a fine powder. This low-glycemic sweetener contains many nutrients including beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein. Yellow lucuma powder has a unique, maple-like taste that’s a delight in a variety of recipes.
Lucuma was viewed in the ancient Peruvian cosmic vision as a symbol of fertility and creation. Traditionally known as the “Gold of the Incas”, the orange and yellow pulpy lucuma fruit (Pouteria obovata, or Lucuma obovata) has been found carved on ceramics discovered in archeological excavations of ancient burial sites in coastal Peru.
