Originally from Peru and once known as "Gold of the Incas", Lucuma provides a boost of rich antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It's also been a symbol of fertility for millennia.
Lucuma is a great way to add a sweet, maple flavor to your favorite foods and beverages - it's low-glycemic and has fewer calories than traditional sweeteners. It also helps to curb cravings and appetite.
Lucuma is high antioxidants, fiber and B-vitamins like beta-carotene and niacin (B3). Beta carotene is responsible for the beautiful orange hue of the fruits flesh and helps aid DNA in keeping cancer at bay, while vitamin B3 is known to help with depression among other things.
Lucuma can be used to flavor cakes, smoothies, ice cream and tons of other mixtures. Your imagination is the only limitation.
