What makes Guava a Superfruit?

Luchos are bursting with natural guava goodness… There are two key ingredients in Luchos 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

Impressed! I recently tried Luchos for fuelling my long-distance runs, and am really impressed! I really like the taste and texture of the Luchos, especially the original guava flavour, and I love how they come wrapped in a naturally compostable leaf! They are a great size, and a great source of carbs. I have also been impressed by the brilliant care the Luchos team have shown - their customer service is excellent. They have always replied to any emails I have sent very promptly and have been really helpful. Thank you so much Luchos!

An Excellent product I used the Lucho Dillitos Colombian energy block for the first time during a 152km Poppy ride in Shropshire. They are excellent both an energy gel and bar in one. They are easy to store on the ride and easier to digest than some energy bars and they taste great. Very natural product vegan and gluten free as well. Will now be joining me on my future rides. My contact with the company ( I will be placing an order) has been excellent very friendly, professional and customer focused. Highly recommended.

Game changer Luchos provided us with their energy blocks for our annual training camp (Cycling), which saw riders covering between 60 and 160km daily over a period of a week. I have been involved in sports and endurance events since i was a teenager and always used gels, safe to say after using their products I will never go back to gels again! I can’t believe I’ve never used them before. If you haven’t used them yet, you really should.

Great experience I would definitely recommend Luchos. Tasty and effective when I tried them out as fuel for a long run. Plus prompt delivery and they included a free sports towel!

Tasting is believing! What a product! Never found a solid, edible energy bar that tastes good (every flavour), does the trick and has no negative effect on my stomach until now! Was introduced to Luchos by a friend and I can not thank them enough. Great value, great flavours, great service.

“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."
