Lucuma. What is it?
Pronounced loo-koo-ma, it’s a hidden gem Peruvian superfruit! It has a mellow sweetness with hints of creamy citrus and a maple-like taste. The flavor is so amazing that it’s the most popular ice cream flavor in Peru. Heck, it’s so delicious, there are over 20 villages named after it.
Beloved by the Incas, for its function as well as flavor, lucuma contains beta carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium, and even a little protein. Viewed as a symbol of fertility and creation, lucuma was called the “Gold of the Incas” and was used for a variety of applications. Recent research shows that lucuma may be helpful for supporting skin health, blood sugar, and even cardiovascular health.
