    tamarind powder

    Posted by mizraim on Feb 20th 2019

    I was expecting the pulp of the tamarind only but apparently the seed and the pod were powdered.
    This may be the reason for a slight scent on the beberage which is not present on the pulp ever.
    The flavour is fine, though there is a thick sediment on the drink.
    I would suggest to the vendor to disclose that the whole fruit has been powdered, and whether the fruit is organic or not.
    After some research on the tamarind fruit, I couldn't find if the seeds and shell have any health properties, the pulp does.
    For flavor, I'd like to add that even the leaves of the plant are acidic, however we do not consume that part, nor the seeds (which do not add to the flavor) and the shell only when is still green has some acidic flavor but not when is dry and brown. In other words, the powder contains the seeds and shell of the fruit which do not add to the flavor, they add to the weight only and also make the beberage heavy in sediment with a slight odor that may not be accepted by some.

    As a person who grew up eating fresh tamarind right from the trees in the front yard of our house, I can say that this product is excellent. I use it to add a punch of acid in an Asian fusion rub that I sell. It gave me the perfect balance that I was looking for.

    I am using this product in one of the blends I make for my small batch craft seasoning company. As someone who grew up eating tamarind straight from the trees in our back yard, I can say that this product has just the right flavor. It added just the right amount of pop to my seasoning blend. Really glad to have found this.

    Que Bueno!

    Tamarind is often used as a tart addition to Asian and Eastern Indian soups and dishes. In hispanic countries, it has many more uses. Most people are familiar with its use in "refreshing waters", lightly sweetened with natural or diet sweeteners. It is also used to make fruit rolls & sweets. Added to orange juice, garlic, and chili, it makes a great marinade for bbq chicken. It can also be sweetened with a bit of honey and added to fruity salad dressings, giving them a deeper flavor and extra zip.
