Also containing protein and trace minerals, this all-natural sweetening powder can not only help stabilize blood sugar, but also curb cravings, curb appetite, and the fruit has long been said to aid in fertility, as it has been a Peruvian symbol of fertility for several millennia. Aside from these benefits, lacuma powder is a safe sweetening alternative to sugar for diabetics. Because of the rich antioxidant content of lucuma powder, this all natural organic sweetener has immune system boosting potential, as well as the ability to fight and prevent certain diseases and illnesses including cancer.
