  • Lucuma overview:

    Lucuma also referred to as the “Gold of the Incas” is native to the highlands of Peru, Chile, and Ecuador, where it has been cultivated for centuries. Our Lucuma powder selects the best, ripest, and largest fruit for the highest quality natural sweetener and flavoring available. Lucuma is perfect for a hint of maple, caramel and custard flavoring without the calories or sugar spikes. Lucuma powder is ideal for making gourmet ice cream products and in some countries (especially Peru) Lucuma flavored ice cream is often favored over vanilla and chocolate.

    Lucuma has been cherished for thousands of years as evidenced by artifacts and ceramics discovered in archaeological excavations of ancient burial sites in coastal Peru. In Peruvian folklore it is revered as a symbol of fertility and longevity. The lucuma fruit (Pouteria obovata, or Lucuma obovata) is yellowish green and egg-shaped with a dry, starchy yellowish orange (golden) flesh.
