Organic Lucuma Powder
Organic lucuma powder has a subtle sweet caramel undertone and a smooth creamy texture. It smells divine and has a creamy citrus flavour. Lucuma Powder is a nutritious and tasty ingredient due its enjoyable flavour often described as caramel or maple with hints of mango and apricot. It contains carbohydrates, fibre and many vitamins and minerals whilst having a low GI, and is enjoyed as a natural sweetener in smoothies, desserts and beverages. It is also an excellent source of beta-carotene, niacin (B3) and iron.
Lucuma is an ancient fruit native to Peru. It has been staple food source for centuries and local communities refer to Lucuma as the ‘tree of life’. Today, the fruit still plays a big part in contemporary Peruvian celebrations and is the most popular flavour of ice cream in the country. Morlife's lucuma powder is made by drying the organic exotic fruit at low temperatures and milling into a fine powder making it a perfect addition to protein shakes, protein bars, bliss balls and healthy desserts.
Lucuma powder is a very versatile and tasty gourmet ingredient in ice cream, yoghurt, milk shakes, cocktails, cakes and desserts. Try adding a dessert spoonful to your favourite dessert or smoothie.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
