Superfoods from South America

Navitas Naturals, a supplier of organic superfood ingredients, offers background information on four of its exotic products — yacon, lucuma, cacao and maca — on location in Peru.

Yacon

Navitas Naturals, a supplier of organic superfood ingredients, offers background information on yacon, a low-caloric, low-glycaemic, prebiotic, sweet-tasting fruit from Peru.

 

Lucuma

Lucuma is one of South America's most potent superfoods, which presents a flavour somewhere between maple and sweet potato. Navitas Naturals describes the growing and harvesting process.

 

Cacao

Cacao is one of the most universally loved foods, packed with antioxidants, flavanols, magnesium and more. Navitas Naturals shows the part cacao plays in Peruvian culture.

 

Maca

Maca, the potent superfood that contains plant sterols, amino acid and phytonutrients, grows at 14,000 feet in the Andes. Navitas Naturals traces the path of maca from these high fields to the United States.
