5 Reasons to Love Lucuma

1. Enchanting Flavor

Lucuma, or “eggfruit,” is a subtropical fruit native to Peru, Ecuador and Chile. Its rich, naturally-sweet taste is often described as caramel-like.

2. Low-Glycemic Sweetness

A wonderful alternative to sugar, lucuma adds sweetness without prompting blood sugar spikes. The fruit is dried at low temperatures and ground into a fine powder.

3. A Spoonful of Lucuma…

…is full of nutrients! Lucuma contains beta-carotene, vitamin B3, iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, protein, antioxidants and dietary fiber.

4. Healing Inside & Out

In alternative medicine, lucuma is used to support the immune system and help reduce inflammation. Additionally, lucuma nut oil may be of benefit externally: results of a Rutgers University study concluded it significantly increased wound closure and promoted tissue regeneration.

5. Adored Confections

As the most popular ice cream flavor in the Andes, this sweet fruit also stars in classic Chilean desserts like "Merengue con Salsa de Lucuma" (lucuma with meringue) and "Manjar con Lucuma" (dulce de leche with lucuma purée).


In ancestral times, lucuma was known as the “Gold of the Incas.”
