Lucuma Fruit – 16 oz Powder
SOUTH AMERICAN SUPERFOOD: Lucuma fruit (pronounced loo-koo-ma) is known in Peru as the “Gold of the Incas,” and has been cherished for centuries both as a staple food source and a religious offering symbolic of fertility and divine creation due to the fruits shape and appearance.
VITAL HEALTH BENEFITS: Lucuma contains fiber, carotenoids, and antioxidants in the form of phenolic compounds. As compared to table sugar, one serving of lucuma provides 3 grams of total sugars but with the additional nutrition of 1 gram of protein and 2 grams of dietary fiber and antioxidants. Training your body to enjoy real sugars from real sources of whole foods, which naturally contain dietary fiber and antioxidants, is one of the best things you can do to support blood sugar balance in healthy individuals with blood sugar levels already within range.*
DELICIOUS FLAVOR: Often described as being similar to sweet potato, maple syrup, or butterscotch, with hints of vanilla. This superfruit adds delicious fun to smoothies, beverages, milks, desserts, and breakfast delights.
