What is Lucama?

Jason Gallimore - Tuesday, August 10, 2010

What is lucama? This is a question that we get at Blue Mountain Organics on a regular basis and the easiest answer to that question is that lucama is a vegan friendly sugar substitute.; The lúcuma (Pouteria lucuma) is an ancient sub-tropical fruit that originated in the Andes Mountains of South America. The fruit was first used in Ecuador, Peru and Chile.

Unlike many fruits, the lucama fruit has a particularly dry flesh which makes it perfect for creating a powder-like sweetener that resembles sugar. The nutritional profile of lucama is impressive. Loaded with extremely high levels of beta-carotene and B vitamins, lucama has long been a staple for many South Americans. You may even notice that we have added lucama to our Blue Mountain Cashew Creamery products!

Go ahead, get a bag and experiment! Sweet, vegan friendly, certified organic and nutritious; lucama has endless possibilities!
