Derived from the lucuma fruit in Peru, Nativas Naturals' Lucuma Powder is a great alternative sweetener that is low-glycemic and loaded with antioxidants, fiber, healthy carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. Once revered in ancient Peruvian cultures as "the Gold of the Incas," in terms of taste, the yellow lucuma powder is said to have a flavor that's quite similar to maple.

Although the lucuma fruit has been dried and milled into a fine powder, unlike sugar, lucuma powder doesn't tend to dissolve as well in drinks like tea and coffee. However, some of the ways Nativas Naturals suggests working this low-sugar alternative into your diet is by blending it into smoothies, cooking it into soups, or using it for baking your favorite treats like cookies, fudge or candies.
