What makes guava a superfruit?

Every Lucho Dillitos is bursting with natural guava goodness.
  • Excellent source of antioxidant vitamin-C. 100 g fresh fruit provides 228 mg 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 (5.4 g per 100 g of fruit, about 14% of DRA)
  • 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

Frequently Asked Questions


Are they called Lucho Dillitos or Bocadillos

Lucho Dillitos is the brand name for our Colombian bocadillo. Bocadillo means sandwich in Spanish but in Colombian it refers to a tasty block of guava paste. These bocadillo have been a traditional 'energy bar' in the South American country for generations. Lucho Dillitos are manufactured in Colombia, with no additives, flavours or preservatives.

How long do they last?

Lucho Dillitos are essentially a preserve, like jam. They do not go off under normal storage conditions. We put a year from manufacture as the sell by date, the date is on the label on the box, but they are edible past this time. As they get older they will slowly get harder and start to dry out. To maximise freshness and keep your bocadillo as soft as possible we recommend storing them in an airtight container.

Will they melt in my pocket?

Our test market was Hong Kong, with temperatures over 30ºC and 90% humidity. Even if the leaf wrapper gets a bit wet the Bocadillo will remain intact.

I have a severe nut allergy, is it safe for me to eat?

Whilst our Bocadillo's don't contain nuts they are made in a facility that handles nuts and, whilst unlikely, we cannot guarantee no trace of nuts.

Is it suitable for vegetarians or vegans?

Yes they are. Our range of 3 flavours of bocadillo's only have 4 ingredients, guava and sugar are in all of them and the with raspberry also has raspberry and with coffee also has coffee.

Can I /do I eat the leaf?

I wouldn't, but it is unlikely to cause you any harm.
