Ultra-Pure Single Ingredient
Known as “Inca’s Gold”, our scouts have heard various origin stories for lucuma. In one story extraterrestrials brought lucuma to Peru over 3,500 years ago to help populate South America. In another, a goddess of the Andean highlands got pregnant by eating this fruit. Lucuma is considered the tree of life and fertility, but it was also used in making dressing to cover wounds. It is rich in minerals like iron that help carry oxygen in the blood, useful in the highlands. Its soft understated sweetness, about half as sweet as sugar, makes for a wholesome alternative to sweeteners. With a hint of butterscotch and maple, Lucuma is best not described. It is best tasted.
