Lucuma (Pouteria Lucuma) is a subtropical fruit from the Andes in South America and in particular, Peru. Lucuma trees, which average 5-20 metres in height, can live until they are at least 500 years old and even then, still produce fruit. For the Incas, lucuma were a natural source of healthy sugar, which is why this nutritious fruit is also known as "Inca’s Gold".

Quantity and Dosage

Mix 1 teaspoon (3 grams) into your favourite smoothie, shake or lassie. To prepare puddings, cakes, pastries and ice cream, you’ll need around 1 to 5 tablespoons of lucuma powder, but always refer to the recipe for the precise amount. One bag contains 500 grams of lucuma powder, so can last up to 160 days, depending on how much you use.
