Among its wide ranging health and nutritional benefits, lucuma is a rich source of vitamin B1 and B2 and provides a massive punch of fibre, antioxidants, beta-carotene, iron, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus.

Lucuma has a sweet, maple flavour and a creamy texture, so is best mixed into juices or smoothies, or used as a sugar/ sweetener alternative in baked goods, desserts and ice cream.
