What makes Guava a Superfruit?

Every Lucho Dillito is bursting with natural guava goodness… There are two key ingredients in Lucho Dillitos Classic bocadillo: guava and sugar. Wrapped up to create a tasty Vegan, Gluten Free energy block!

Excellent source of antioxidant vitamin-C. 100g fresh fruit provides 228mg of this vitamin, more than three times the required daily-recommended intake (and 4 times more than an orange)

Rich in Vitamin-A, and flavonoids like beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and cryptoxanthin. The compounds are known to have antioxidant properties

A very rich source of soluble dietary fiber (5.4g per 100g of fruit, about 14% of RDA)

A very rich source of potassium. It contains more potassium than other fruits like banana, weight per weight. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

A moderate source of B-complex vitamins such as pantothenic acid, niacin, vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin E and K, as well as minerals like magnesium, copper, and manganese

Great natural product and wrapper Met Lucho Dillitos at the Running Show and have been impressed with the energy bars and the natural wrapper. None of the stickiness of gels and easy to carry in my vest or belt. They have been great on digestion and definitely something I will use.

So glad I found these small squares of… So glad I found these small squares of guava goodness. I’m not a huge fan of syrupy energy gels so when I discovered I could get my energy from guava paste I was intrigued. Turns out they work really well, don’t leak and the wrapper is a leaf so it’s completely biodegradable and doesn't leave a gooey mess in your backpack. An essential on my long runs, they even pair great with cheese so you can get your protein and carbohydrate kick in one mouthful1

“Bought these at the NEC Cycle Show and have eaten them all on road rides. A brilliant tasty and satisfying alternative to gels, bars or bananas! My friends loved them too and the biodegradable leaf wrapping is a nice touch - although I still take it home! Easy to open and consume on the move - I'm back for more!”

''A welcome change. This is your mid run alternative. In addition it is a hit of energy-boosting carbs, these blocks are also full of vitamins A and C'.'

Wainwrights Round Record Holder James Forrest: “Lucho Dillitos guava energy blocks – a mix of sugar and fruit that provide an epic energy boost and taste way better than gels. You’ve got to treat yourself when you’re out on a big adventure."

"This is a job for Lucho Dillitos Bocadillos, aka "Colombia's original energy bar": a piece of tropical Kendal mint cake wrapped in a dried leaf that is as natural as any other leaf on the road."

"A different approach to sport nutrition. Natural Energy from Columbia (Yes it’s legal) and it’s like a bar and gel rolled into one making it one block of energy."

"Lucho Dillitos Energy Bars are easy to eat, chew, swallow, and digest ... I liked the texture, sweetness, lack of mess, and the biodegradable wrapping."
