Lucuma instead of sugar

August 3, 2014

Sugar is toxic, even more than fat, and one of the main causes of obesity, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. In most recipes, we often try to reduce the portion of sugar or replace it with honey, maple syrup or agave syrup. Lucuma powder is increasingly easy to find in organic stores and can also be a very good substitute. This powder comes from a fruit native of Peru and has been consumed for a long time there. This powder is very useful for cooking because it has a low glycemic index, and is rich in vitamins, fibers, and minerals. It can be added to smoothies or juices, and can easily replace sugar in cakes, muffins, pancakes, yogurts and puddings. One of the specialties of Peru is lucuma ice cream. Lucuma powder keeps up to 12 months in a cool, dry place away from light and moisture.

    Je ne connais pas ce sucre. Il n’est pas arrivé jusque dans mon coin de France. Mais, ça m’intéresse car je ne mange plus de sucre. J’ai tout remplacé par du fructose, du sirop d’agave et du sucre de coco avec parcimonie car je dois surveiller ma glycémie. Je vais regarder dans mon magasin bio la prochaine fois que j’irai y faire un réapprovisionnement.

      Bonjour Nathalie,

      j’espère que vous en trouverez! Sinon il est surement possible de commander en ligne. Le lucuma est très intéressant et goûte un peu le caramel.
