Product Description

Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder is made from whole Peruvian lucuma fruit that has been dried at low temperatures and milled into a fine powder. It is a bonus that this delicious low-glycemic sweetener contains many nutrients including beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein. Lucuma is native to the highlands of Peru where it has been cultivated since ancient times. Today, lucuma is one of the region’s most enjoyed foods, and is a popular ice cream flavor among Europeans and South Americans. Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder is an alternative sweetener that has an aromatic, sweet fragrance and full-bodied taste reminiscent of maple, which lends itself to a diverse array of applications. Add lucuma to beverages, smoothies, yogurt and cereal, or blend it into desserts and baked goods for a sweet and flavorful nutrition boost.

I bought lucuma when I went to Lima, Peru and thought I could never get it anywhere fresh but there. Until I gave Navitas Naturals a shot. The price was reasonable, and I love to put a spoonful in my smoothies. This stuff could have come right from where I used to get it because it is the same and is so fresh. Try lucuma ice cream if you have an ice cream maker, or put it in your smoothies like me. If you like lucuma, Navitas is a good brand to get it.

This is the only Lucuma I have ever tasted in my whole life before so I can't compare it to a different product. However it's hard to imagine that Lucuma could be more delightful and delicious than this! I have mixed it into raw chocolates with coconut butter, cacao butter and cacao powder. I have made a smoothie with bananas, hemp seeds, and vanilla. I also mixed it into a strawberry pudding with chia seeds and raw honey. Yum!

Nutrition

Lucuma provides 14 essential trace elements, including a considerable amount of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, while heavy metal content is low, according to the Ministry of Agriculture in Nanning, China. Lucuma powder contains 329 calories per 100 g. Per 100 g, it contains 87 g of carbohydrates, 2.3 g of fiber, 4 g of protein and 2.4 g of total fat content. It also has 92 mg of calcium per 100 g to keep your bones and teeth strong. Phosphorus is important for bone and protein formation, digestion and hormone balance; lucuma provides 186 mg per 100 g. According to My Fitness Pal, 1 tbsp. of lucuma provides 2 percent of the recommended daily value for iron, which may help stimulate the immune system and improve physical endurance.

Health Benefits

Lucuma has been used for centuries in South America for its medicinal properties. The State University of New Jersey reported a study that evaluated the anti-inflammatory effect of lucuma extract on wound healing and skin aging. Results of the trial determined that lucuma significantly increased wound closure and promoted tissue regeneration. The report of the study concluded that lucuma may have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and skin-repair effects on human skin.

Usage

Lucuma fruit powder has a distinctively sweet and fragrant taste that provides a natural sweetening to desserts without increasing your blood sugar levels, unlike many sweeteners that offer empty calories. A healthy alternative to sugar, lucuma powder may be useful for diabetics and people with other health issues. Lucuma fruit powder can be added to any beverage, smoothie, yogurt, granola, pudding or pastry.

I use this as a substitute for powdered milk in my chocolate recipes. It adds a creamy texture and a lighter flavor. I love it

I was disappointed. I thought this would be a nice sweetener. It's not. It's sort of bitter really. It's a powder and I didn't find it that easy to dissolve. I'm using it in baking recipes. If you are thinking of using this as a sweetener, think again. Not crazy about it really.

One of the things I miss most since being put on a very restrictive diet was carmel. With this product you can make a carmel sauce that isn't quite as good as Grandma used to make it but its as close as I can get :)
