What is Lucuma Powder?

Lucuma (Pouteria lucuma), the "sweet gold of the Incas", is a subtropical, exotic fruit from South America that has long been revered by the ancient Andean culture.

Why Buy Lucuma Powder?

  • Healthy fruit sweetness with a low glycemic index
  • Particularly rich in beta-carotene, iron, vitamins B1 and B2
  • Versatile ingredient for cakes, desserts and ice cream

It has been one of our favorite foods since we first met Lucuma powder.

The healthy fruit sweetness with a low glycemic index is particularly rich in beta-carotene, iron, vitamins B1 and B2.

Its biscuit-like sweetness makes it a favorite in (raw food) cakes, desserts and chocolates. We like to add it to our creams and ice creams and as a gourmet ingredient for all sweets - the wonderful aroma and the biscuit-like sweetness of the Lucuma powder refine every dessert. In Peru, the yellowish-orange fruit is the most popular flavor for ice cream.

What makes our Lucuma powder special?

  • Free from pesticides and agrochemicals
  • Raw food quality
  • Gentle processing
  • Best taste

Lucuma from SamaraNatura is free from pesticides and agrochemicals.

The Lucuma pulp is dried in a solar drying system at low temperatures according to raw food quality standards, then gently ground and then sieved.

Although lucuma thrives in other tropical regions as well, the taste of the fruits that grow in the Peruvian highlands is rated even better. This is where our Lucuma powder comes from. The taste of the beautiful, dark yellow powder is reminiscent of maple syrup and cashews.

How to use

Lucuma powder is an extremely versatile and tasty ingredient that goes well in ice creams, baby food, yogurts, cakes, chocolate and desserts and can be used for Lucuma mousse, pudding or parfait. It is ideal as a sweet flour for tarts, cakes and pastries and tastes great in smoothies, nut milk and other drinks.

The powder gives a rich, creamy consistency and turns your raw food creations into a heavenly gourmet treat! We mostly use it in sweet dishes, but we've been told that it tastes great in savory dishes too.

Just like Maca, Lucuma helps to merge and emulsify fats or oils with sugar or polysaccharides. For example, Lucuma is ideal as an ingredient for a meal or drink with cocoa chips (50% fat) and yacon root syrup (polysaccharides). It combines cocoa and yacon in taste and consistency.

Organic Mesquite Powder
Weight : 250g
Mesquite powder - sweetener from the desert Mesquite was a traditional staple food of the indigenous people of the arid regions of North and South America. Today, mesquite powder is being rediscovered as a nutritious and tasty food and used all over the world. Mesquite has the sweet, wild taste of the desert with a hint of caramel and is versatile. Mesquite has a protein content of approx. 14% and is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and the amino acid lysine, which is rarely found in a grain-heavy diet. Mesquite is 25% fiber and has a low glycemic index. Mesquite flour is naturally gluten-free. Why We Love Mesquite Powder Mesquite has a sweet, malty taste that is similar to carob, but with a caramel flavor. The full-bodied taste and aroma goes well with vanilla and chocolate and it gives sweet treats a delicious maltiness. Mesquite can be mixed with nut milk, is an excellent ingredient in smoothies and is delicious sprinkled on ice cream. An exquisite malty chocolate can be made with it, and mesquite can also be used as a partial aromatic substitute for flour. It is a wonderful food to experiment with SamaraNatura organic mesquite powder Our mesquite powder is made from the whole pods of the mesquite tree, which are gently dried and then processed into a flour or powder. Since there is no guarantee that the temperature will always remain below 42°C during drying, we refrain from using the term raw food quality. How to use Mesquite is a delicious ingredient for cakes, desserts, smoothies, ice cream and homemade bread. It tastes particularly good in combination with cocoa and maca.

Carob powder organic
Weight : 250g
Carob powder - made from the pods of the carob tree Update: Sale of the current 250g batch with a best-before date of 06/30/2023 with a 50% discount (CHF 4.60-. instead of 9.20). The carob powder can still be used and enjoyed for several months afterwards. The 500g bags (select on the right) are already from the new batch with best before 01/31/2024. Carob is a legume that grows on the carob tree, a wild, evergreen tree native to the Mediterranean, and has been used as a sweetener and nutritious natural snack for thousands of years. Carob was well known to the ancient Greeks, and they spread the seeds of this plant in Greece and Italy. Carob is naturally sweet and fewer sweeteners are required when used in recipes. It has a low glycemic index, is low in fat and extremely nutritious, high in calcium, protein and fiber. Benefits of carob powder Little familiar to Carob thinks it's a healthy version of (high sugar and high fat) chocolate, but it's so much more. We like to mix carob with raw cocoa for a sweet and healthy treat, because cocoa has a lot of magnesium and, compared to cocoa, carob contains three times as much calcium, a third fewer calories and only 1% fat. SamaraNatura organic carob powder Our organic carob powder from Spain is gently heated and ground to dry in order to preserve taste, color and nutrients. Due to the drying process of well over 42° C, it is no longer raw food. Due to the different needs, we offer carob powder in 2 sizes: 250g and 500g. This can be selected at the top right under "Weight". How to use Use carob powder to sweeten dishes, in desserts, smoothies, sprinkled on your muesli, as an ingredient in raw chocolate and cakes as well as in quick and nutritious snacks.

Yacon Syrup Organic
Content: 250ml/330g
Yacon Syrup Organic - Delicious, prebiotic sweetener Yacon is grown in the high mountain valleys of the Andes and has a dense root system that is full of minerals, vitamins and complex vital substances. The freshly squeezed juice of the root is a gift from nature and has been enjoyed by the Andean peoples for centuries. The special thing about Yacon is the quality of its sugar, which is mainly in the form of oligofructose (or fructooligosaccharides). Oligofructose cannot be used by the digestive enzymes and therefore hardly causes any calories and protects the blood sugar level. In addition, as a prebiotic, oligofructose supports a healthy intestinal flora. An ideal sweetener for diabetics, health-conscious and diet-conscious people alike. Why we love Yacon Syrup Yacon tastes delicious and has half as many calories as honey, for example. And on top of that, its sugar hardly increases the blood sugar level and avoids strenuous blood sugar highs and lows. Yacon syrup is also significantly less glycemic than honey, agave or maple syrup. The oligofructose in Yacon also supports the beneficial bacteria in the colon, thereby improving digestion and absorption of nutrients. The indigestible sugar thus serves the beneficial bacteria as prebiotic food. SamaraNatura Yacon Syrup Our yacon syrup comes from traditional varieties from the Peruvian Andes and is 100% natural, grown without pesticides and agrochemicals. It is produced at low temperatures, which guarantees that the syrup retains a very high quality of nutrients and enzymes. This yacon syrup is thickened from yacon juice in a special vacuum process at low temperatures of 45°C. Since this yacon syrup can only be kept for a relatively short time without pasteurization, it is pasteurized at 70°C for 3 minutes. The syrup is therefore not raw food, but processed very gently, which means that the valuable nutrients and enzymes in the roots are largely retained. How to use Yacon syrup can be used in many ways as a sweetener. It can be used to sweeten desserts, drinks and smoothies. For salad dressings, we like to mix the syrup with vinegar, as a substitute for balsamic vinegar, which usually contains a lot of sugar. The sweetness of the syrup is less strong than the sweetness of sugar, honey or agave syrup. To support a healthy intestinal flora, 1 teaspoon is sufficient daily. For a better shelf life, we recommend storing the yacon syrup in the refrigerator.

Agave Syrup Organic
Content: 250ml
Premium agave syrup in raw food quality What is agave? The agave is a cactus-like plant from Mexico. Agave syrup is a delicious sweetener made from the juice inside agaves that are at least eight years old. The Mexicans traditionally collected the sweet juice ("aguamiel") from various agaves in order to make sweeteners and special drinks for celebrations. Why buy agave syrup? Agave syrup is a vegan alternative to honey and has a pleasant taste, like a mixture of honey and maple syrup. It can be used in many ways as a sweetener. Only the very gently processed agave syrup like ours has a low glycemic index and is only slowly absorbed into the bloodstream. It is therefore particularly recommended for people who are sensitive to sugar. What makes our agave syrup special? Most conventional agave syrups, including those from organic farming, are made from 3-6 different agave species and have been heated up and pasteurized, as the juice of the agave spoils quickly after it has been removed. The contained healthier multiple sugars (polysaccharides, mainly in the form of inulin) are converted into simple sugars. They have lost a large part of their nutrients! Our agave syrup is obtained exclusively from the Salmiana agave, is processed very gently and at low temperatures and is therefore of the best quality available on the market. No pesticides or other agrochemicals are used in cultivation. The syrup is produced in special vacuum containers in which the water it contains evaporates at very low temperatures. The valuable vitamins, minerals and enzymes are largely preserved and available for our body. Because our agave syrup is 100% natural, it has a stronger taste and a darker color than commercially available concentrated juices. How to use in the daily diet? Agave syrup is characterized by a high, neutral sweetness. It enhances the aroma and is easily soluble in cold and warm dishes and drinks. Ideally suited for baked goods and due to the low tendency to crystallize for the production of jams and jellies.

Maca - Ancient Superfood from the Andes The root vegetable has been a staple food of the indigenous peoples of the Andes for thousands of years and is an excellent source of energy and stamina.Its content of bioavailable protein is about 11% in the dried root.For legal reasons (Swiss Food Ordinance), as a food retailer we are not allowed to make any statements about possible effects. Do your own research on Maca on the Internet. Among others, we find the site of Dr. Schweikart very informative. The different varieties are also described there. Currently, our assortment includes, in addition to the yellow Maca described here, also the red and black Maca, of course also in organic and raw food quality. In addition, we carry Bio Maca Max, a more digestible variety, in which the starch contained in the Maca powder is converted by heating, so that it is easier to digest and absorb. Why we love Maca Maca increases our energy levels. Maca makes us feel full of energy, grounded and cheerful.Plus, Maca has a pleasant, malty flavor and can be used in many different ways. SamaraNatura Maca Powder yellow Our pure, yellow, Maca powder is made from 100% natural Maca roots from controlled organic cultivation, produced under strict production standards and quality controls. They all come from altitudes above 4000 meters above sea level in the Junín region of Peru.Our suppliers work together with small farmers. In doing so, they create jobs for the regional population and advise the small entrepreneurs by providing training and financial support. This is a means of raising the standard of living of small farmers while increasing their crop yields. How to use Maca Powder Maca has a unique flavor and can be added to many different dishes. Some people find the taste of maca powder somewhat reminiscent of caramel with an upbeat note. Maca powder can be stirred into rice, nut or hemp milk, for example, or simply mixed into muesli. Mix Maca powder with water, milk of your choice or add it to juice, smoothie, muesli or raw desserts. Maca is also a good binder for soups and therefore a delicious addition to them. We especially like maca with oatmeal and as an ingredient in our raw chocolate recipes.It is advisable to start with a small amount of ½ tsp per day and increase up to 1-2 tbsp per day. Unlike soy products, Mexican yam and flaxseed, maca does not contain hormones.Note: A common misconception about superfoods and herbs is that there is a standard usage amount. In general, the usual recommended daily intake for most superfoods, like maca, is between 1 tsp and 3 tbsp per day, divided into two or three doses. It is best to start with 1 tsp per day and adjust the amount to your personal needs.

Cacao powder Criollo Organic
Cacao powder Criollo - Low in fat with 10-12% cocoa butter content Our raw cocoa powder originates from the precious cocoa sauce Criollo and has a delicious, full chocolate taste. It is made from unroasted cocoa beans and contains up to twice as much antioxidants as conventional cocoa powder. The gentle processing at low temperatures preserves vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants which can be absorbed so optimally by the body. Cocoa has all the benefits of chocolate, but without the undesirably high sugar content and the additives of commercial chocolate. Raw cocoa has an abundance of antioxidants and the combination of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenetylamine (PEA) illuminates our mood and creates feelings of wellbeing and joy in us. Cocoa is also rich in magnesium. Our cocoa is grown by small farmers in the Amazon rainforest under semi-natural conditions. Why we love Cocoa powder The cocoa bean is an impressive food given to us by Mother Nature. It was regarded by the Aztecs as a gift of God and was used not only as a sacrifice, but also as a means of payment. It has been found that raw cocoa contains about 300 substances and is one of the foods with the highest content of antioxidants! Cocoa can therefore help to protect our cells from free radicals and highly reactive oxygen compounds. They are important to maintain and function the cell. Cocoa has the highest magnesium content of all foods. Magnesium is a component of bones and teeth, plays an important role in energy metabolism and is essential for a normal muscle function and for energy metabolism. Magnesium also plays a role in the skeletal structure and is important in the transmission of stimuli in the nervous system during muscle contraction. Cocoa beans contain a combination of substances that trigger feelings of wellbeing and joy in us. SamaraNatura organic Cocoa powder Criollo Our cocoa powder is made from the Peruvian precious cocoa variety Criollo, one of the world's rarest and best cocoa varieties, and comes from a cooperative in Peru, which dispenses with the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers and supplies the largest raw materials stores in the United States and Great Britain. To prepare the powder, the uncooked noble cocoa beans are first ground. The dark-brown viscous cocoa mass produced in this way is compressed by cold pressing to form a cake from which the liquid golden yellow cocoa butter slowly drains. The remaining "cocoa press cake" is subsequently finely ground and sieved through. This process does not require any chemicals, additives or extraction solvents and produces a fine, soft powder with a full, wonderful chocolate flavor. The quality of our organic, fair trade certified Criollo cocoa is of great purity and free from mycotoxins, mold and yeast, and prevents you from experiencing this nervous tension that is associated with the consumption of caffeine-containing foods and drinks. Use Mix cocoa powder to your muesli, smoothies, (hot) milk drinks, protein drinks and teas. As an ingredient for all delicious chocolate creations and desserts.

Cacao nibs Criollo Organic
Cacao Nibs Criollo – Chocolate Magic Cacao nibs or chips are cacao beans which were peeled and broken into small pieces. Our cacao nibs are from one of the finest cacao varieties and 100% raw and unprocessed. Our premium cacao is grown by small farmers in the Amazon rainforest under semi-wild conditions. Cacao has all the health benefits of chocolate but without the high sugar content and additives found in commercial chocolate. Raw cacao contains an abundance of antioxidants, and the combination of stimulating substances (serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenethylamine) has mood lifting effects and promotes in us feelings of well-being and joy. Cacao is also rich in magnesium and sulfur, the beauty mineral. Cacao nibs taste less bitter than cacao powder, since they still contain the entire share of the cacao butter (approx. 55%), as also cacao paste does. Why we love Cacao The cacao bean is an amazing food given to us by Mother Nature. The Aztecs considered cacao as a gift of God and used it not only as an offering, but also as a means of payment. It is estimated that raw cacao contains approx. 300 substances and it is considered as one the foods richest in antioxidants! Therefore cacao can significantly help to protect our body cells from free radicals and premature aging. Cacao has the highest magnesium content of all foods. Magnesium is essential for the heart, brain, to calm and relax nerves and muscles and to build bones and cartilages. In conjunction with other ingredients cacao is an ideal brain food and supports mental performance, concentration and attention. Cacao contains a combination of substances which affect our emotions stimulating feelings of well-being and joy. And cacao is rich in sulfur, which promotes strong nails and healthy hair and beautifies the skin. SamaraNatura Cacao Nibs Our cacao nibs are 100% raw and unprocessed. They are made from Criollo cacao from Peru, which is one of the best and rarest varieties in the world. Our fine cocoa is cultivated without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Fine cacao of premium quality has a share of only 5-10% of the world's cacao production. Fine cacao grows under similar and often nearly same conditions as in nature, since cacao trees do not like full sun and thrive best close to high rainforest trees. On the contrary the commercial Forastero cacao is typically cultivated in monoculture plantations. As the name indicates, fine cacao has a better, more exquisite flavour which is less bitter than the taste of commercial cacao. Criollo beans are slightly fermented which enhances their typical cacao aroma. Cacao nibs, which are cacao beans peeled and broken into small pieces, taste less bitter than the beans. The purity of our organic, fair trade certified Criollo Cacao is void of mycotoxins, mould and yeast, and thus prevents you from experiencing the jitters associated with caffeine foods or beverages. Use On its own as a snack or sprinkle on cereals and fruit salad. Add cacao nibs to desserts and smoothies. They taste particularly good together with goji berries and nuts. Cacao nibs are convenient to take for journeys and on travels as they do not melt as quickly as chocolate does when exposed to heat. If you prefer more sweetness, you can dip the cacao nibs in agave syrup or honey.

Traditionally it has also been used as an aphrodisiac, to increase fertility and during menopause. Maca helps the body to adapt to high levels of stress by providing energy wherever it is needed without over-stimulating the body. Why we love Maca The maca plant is one of the most powerful plants on earth! We love it because it raises energy levels, combats mental and physical fatigue and stress. It makes us feel strong, energized, grounded, happy and prepared to face any challenge.

Maca is a powerful superfood and can have a strong rebalancing and detoxifying effect, especially if you’re body is not in perfect health. It is wiser to start with a small dosage of ½ tsp. a day and build up to 1-2 tbsp. a day. Once the first phase of detox and rebalancing has passed, you can increase the dosage to up to 3 tbsp. a day, especially during times of stress. Unlike soya products, Mexican wild yams and flaxseeds, Maca does not contain hormones itself, so there is no danger in overdoing it. Note: A common misconception about superfoods and herbs is that there is a standard dosage. We believe that the proper measure is in relation to size, sensitivity, age, gender and many other factors that make each human being unique. In general though, a typical daily-suggested intake for most superfoods could be anywhere from 1 tsp. to 3 tbsp. daily, split into two or three doses. Best is to start at 1 tsp. per day and regulating your own dosage according to your personal needs.
