Harvested from evergreen trees in the highlands of Peru, the intensely-flavoured lucuma fruit is a source of fibre, minerals, and carbohydrates.
Its bright yellow flesh has a pleasant fruity caramel flavour that has been used as a sweetener, and as a base ingredient in Incan food for centuries.
Thus traditionally-dried powder has an alluring aroma that makes it a unique ingredient in desserts and smoothies. Sprinkle over ice cream for a stimulating flavour revelation
Lucuma is a great source of potassium which contributes to maintenance of normal blood pressure, and also contains iron which supports a reduction in tiredness and fatigue as well as zinc which contributes to maintenance of normal bones, teeth, hair and nails and contributes to normal fertility and reproduction.
