What is Lulo?
It’s an exotic fruit from Colombia, the little orange that’s green, known as Naranjilla, or little orange, outside Colombia. The word ‘lulo’ comes from the Quechua ‘ruru’, which means fruit or egg.
Lulo is the new lemon/lime. Why stick with lemon or lime, when you can mix it up with lulo?
What does “Berraquera” mean? [pronounced ‘berakera’ or ‘berrrrrrakera!’]
Berraquera is the ‘passion, courage and determination of the venturous.’ It’s a well-loved Colombian word for the strength to overcome, the resilient and creative energy to bounce back from adversity; overcome set-backs and make dreams reality.
Berraquera is a venture into new realms of taste, and into the dynamic, colourful country of Colombia where 140,000 families are now covered by agreements to substitute crops.
Lulo grows in many post-conflict regions and has huge potential for peace.
What are the health benefits?
Lulo’s natural kick, due to its tartness, is traditionally offset with sugar.
However the 25cl Berraquera balances the lulo with pressed apple juice: a drink that is well over 99% fruit with no added sugar, not watered down.
A 25cl Berraquera contains just 100 kcal. 25cl white wine contains 200.
