Lucuma

Its intense and strong yellow-orange colour is due to the beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Rich in carbohydrates and a preferred ingredient of dairy products, patisserie and gourmet ice cream.

Cacao

Maca

Powerful physical and mental tonic with skills to enhance the immune system, giving power, strength, energy, stamina, reduce stress and fatigue. It is high in calcium, phosphorus and minerals.

Brazil nuts
