Organic Raw Lucuma Powder Nutrition Facts

History

Lucuma also called “Gold of the Incas”, a native of Peru, was regularly used by the Incas. Prana’s lucuma is imported from that exact same origin. Lucuma has been found on ceramics at burial sites of the indigenous people of coastal Peru. The Moche people, native to Peru, had a fascination with agriculture and often chose to represent fruits and vegetables, including lucuma, in their art.

Culinary Uses

Lucuma is very nutritious and is a perfect food to pair with culinary delights. Lucuma powder will add aroma, flavour as well as a sweet touch to any meal. This sweetener is also a perfect sugar and egg substitute. But make sure to adjust your recipes sugar content as lucuma is sweeter in taste than cane sugar. Add it to your deserts, cakes, yogourts, juices and much more. A perfect combination with ice-cream and sorbets!
