Lucuma, Pouteria lucuma, also known in South America as egg fruit, has been called the “Gold of the Incas”. Lucuma is sweet but has a low glycemic index meaning it increases blood sugar slowly and steadily without the typical spike seen with most common sugars. It contains many nutrients including beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein. Lucuma powder has a unique taste that’s a delight in a variety of recipes. Some say it tastes like maple, others that it is a cross between caramel and sweet potato. But the consensus is that it’s delicious.
