tamarind-puree

Tamarind is used as a staple in Indian dishes. It is also referred to as the ‘date of India.’ Spices like ginger, garam masala, turmeric, and coriander go well with this sour and tangy fruit.  You can eat it straight from the pods, or you can convert it into a puree form. Tamarind Puree is pulp that has been boiled down.

It is a versatile ingredient that adds great flavours to sweet and savoury dishes. You can add it in sweet pickles, juices, soups, and soft drinks. Tamarind Puree is made using the fruit extract or from the pods.

And the best thing is that it is very beneficial for your health. Here’s how.

1) Improves Nerve Function

Tamarind Puree has the presence of B vitamin Thiamine that is essential for improving nerve function and muscle development. So, you can add the Puree to your everyday diet to reap its full benefits.

2) Weight Management

Tamarind Puree has Hydroxy Citric Acid, a compound that can prevent enzymes involved in fat storage. The acid can also reduce appetite by treating hormonal imbalance.

3) Rich in Nutrients

Tamarind Puree contains essential nutrients beneficial for our health. Research suggests that if you take 100 grams of tamarind a day, you will get 36% of thiamin, 35% of iron, 23% of magnesium, and 16% of phosphorus. It is also rich in niacin, copper, calcium, Vitamin C, and pyridoxine. In addition, Tamarind Puree is a powerhouse of antioxidants essential for good health.
