Raw Lucuma Powder
An exotic, slightly sweet subtropical fruit grown in South America, the taste of lucuma is incredibly unique. With rich flavors of maple, custard and caramel, it’s long been a local favorite ice cream flavor. The lucuma fruit has green skin, with a bright yellow-orange flesh and a large seed in the middle similar to an avocado. Also known as eggfruit, mamey sapote, and zapotillo, lucuma is high in fiber, and has potassium, zinc, iron, and vitamin C, making it both a delicious and nourishing superfood.
The Sunfood Difference™
Our lucuma powder is completely pure and free of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, solvents and additives. It is made by drying the most ripe and flavorful fruits at a low temperature and gently grinding them up into an easy-to-use powder. This process preserves the delicate flavors and nutritional qualities of lucuma.
