Green Origins Organic Raw Lucuma Powder is a wholefood made from the fruit of Pouteria lucuma, an evergreen tree that thrives in the Andean region of South America. The Lucuma fruit has long been a part of Peruvian diets, where it is prized for its flavour. It is a rich source of carotene antioxidants, B vitamins, and dietary fibre, which makes up 15% of its volume.
Green Origins Organic Raw Lucuma Powder is organically grown on farms in the Pasco region of central Peru. The Lucuma fruit is selected and cleaned by hand, before being washed and disinfected – again by organically-certified processes. It is manually peeled and the flesh of the fruit cut up, to be gently dried in hot air. The dried fruit is milled to a 60-micron powder before being packed.
