Guilianna grew up in the Peruvian Andes near majestic Machu Picchu, where she was helping her mother run a popular catering business. From her, she learned how to mix the flavors and aromas of ancient ingredients in perfect harmony. It was that love and longing for clean, nutritious food that led Gulianna to start ALMA Superfoods upon her arrival in California.
These days ALMA Superfoods produces four wonderful flavors of nut butters, and are dreaming up new products and ingredients that will satisfy your pallet and inspire healthy eating habits.
If you haven’t tasted savory nut butters you just have to try ALMA Superfoods Yellow Aji- Cashew flavor!
YELLOW AJI (pronounced ah-hee) pepper is often considered the most important ingredient in Peruvian cuisine. Cultivated for 5,000 years, it’s been called a “pepper with personality” due to its bold spiciness and its fruity, distinguished taste. Yellow Aji pepper has a very complex flavor with a hint of citrus such as passion fruit and mango, and is especially high in antioxidants and Vitamin C. Carefully ground at low temperature and blended with flavorful ingredients in small batches, Alma’s Cashew & Yellow Aji spread will give a medium kick to your favorite dishes.
A few of the most desirable parings are with eggs, potatoes, meat squares , veggies, noodles, cheese, crackers or as a salad dressing.
Think about Yellow Aji nut butter as a cross between hummus and mustard. You got it?!
And for all those that need some more spice in their dishes we recommend smoky Chipotle Cashew Butter.
Chipotle peppers are actually jalapeños, preserved in a smoking process reﬁned in Mexico and Central America long before the rise of the Aztec empire. Carefully ground at low temperature and blended with flavorful ingredients in small batches, Alma’s Cashew & Chipotle Pepper spread will give a smoky, spicy kick to your favorite dishes.
Great with cheese & crackers, veggies, potatoes, burgers, eggs, pasta, and more!
And for all those that prefer the traditional sweet note of nut butters, ALMA Superfoods offers Lucuma – Almond flavor and Cacao – Hazelnut.
If you are diabetic you probably already know Lucuma fruit is used regularly as a sweetener. Lucuma, often called the “Gold of the Incas”, has a flavor profile that resembles maple syrup, sweet potato and pumpkin. It has a low glycemic index and high contents of vitamins A, B3, iron, calcium, zinc and antioxidants. This unique superfood grown in South and Central America is used to enhance warm, comforting flavors in every bite.
Put it on toast, mix with oatmeal or yogurt, spread on pancakes or make your own energy balls! A perfect start to your morning.
CACAO is a well known superfood considered by the Mayan culture to be the “Food of the Gods.” Cacao has been enjoyed in the tropics of North and South America for thousands of years. In addition to its delicious flavor, cacao is a source of antioxidants, magnesium , calcium and iron. Carefully ground at low temperature and blended with flavorful ingredients in small batches, Alma’s Hazelnut & Cacao spread is lightly sweetened, full of ﬂavor, very often called the “adult version of Nutella”.
