Lucuma has been on our product wish list for far too long. This sweet, low GI fruit only grows in Peru and is lovingly nicknamed the "Gold of the Incas" by the Peruvians. They prize this fruit so much that they have named 26 towns after it and it is also the most popular ice cream flavour in the country!
I absolutely love this product. It tastes AMAZING and it works. Must-have product!
A Natural Sweetener
Not only is it delicious but this amazing super food is also the perfect natural sweetener as it is low in GI.
Lucuma Repairs Skin
For thousands of years the Peruvians have been using Lucuma to repair damaged skin and wounds. Modern science has recently been investigating these claims and have come across some impressive results.
|A scientific article published in 2010 analysed current research on Lucuma and found a study in which some fish were fed Lucuma prior to having their tail fin amputated. The researchers found that the fin had completely regrown within 48 hours. In another study conducted in New Jersey found that wounds in mice repaired faster when treated with Lucuma Oil (a href="http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1473-2165.2010.00509.x/abstract;jsessionid=3E24A238BE9DA4E98740974D4CBA2566.f04t02?deniedAccessCustomisedMessage=&userIsAuthenticated=false" target="_blank">read article|
Perfect texture and taste to accompany any fruit smoothie, great for that beautiful glow on your skin!!!
Some scientists believe that Lucuma's skin healing properties are due to the antioxidants present in the fruit.

This amazing super food contains significant amounts of beta-carotene, zinc, iron, niacin, vitamin c and fibre. As well as all essential trace minerals.
Excellent Source Of Calcium
Lucuma contains more calcium than cows milk (186ml per 100g compared to 125mg per 100g). Calcium is necessary not just for healthy bones but also for proper functioning of your nerves and in order for your blood to clot.
How To Use
Lucuma works well in everything from baked goods to dairy products and is often described as having a somewhat of a natural caramel flavour. It's a great replacement for refined sugar and to give a bit of sweetness to your smoothies!
