What Makes Our Lucuma So Special?

Our Lucuma is fair trade, dairy free, vegan and gluten free so it's a great refined sugar replacement for just about everyone. It is also fair trade so you know the livelihood of the farmers is being protected. All Lucuma sold through Forest Super Foods is certified organic and thus is guaranteed to be preservative free, pesticide free and unradiated. We use no fillers or additives and thus what you buy is 100% Premium Lucuma.

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

Some scientists believe that Lucuma's skin healing properties are due to the antioxidants present in the fruit.

Packed With Nutrients

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!
