Fresh Thai Manila Tamarind 500g - Imported weekly from Thailand

The English names "Manila tamarind" and "Madras thorn" are both misleading since it is neither related to the tamarind nor native to Manila (though it was introduced early to the Philippines) or Madras. Other English names include blackbead, sweet Inga, and monkeypod

The seed pods contain a sweet and sour pulp which is eaten raw in Mexico, the Philippines, Pakistan, and India as an accompaniment to various meat dishes and used as a base for drinks with sugar and water

The ripe fruit can be eaten just as such, added to salads, fruit juices, lemonades and cooked as a curry with vegetables, made into a tangy chutney to be eaten alongside staple Indian dishes of rice, dal, roti. Not only does the manila tamarind infuse a delectable sweet-sour flavour to numerous dishes like soups, juices, salads, but it is also loaded with myriad nutritional components, that augment overall wellbeing.

The tart-tasting pulp of the manila tamarind seed pod provides sufficient calories and carbohydrates, for instant energy to carry out external physical tasks and internal biochemical reactions in the body. It is also high in dietary fibers, proteins and water content, to regulate appetite, promote weight loss and enhance digestion processes. Imbued with vitamin C, Camachile boosts immunity and helps fight seasonal illnesses like cough, colds, fevers, flu and other infections.

The abundance of vitamins B1, B2 elevate metabolism while ample vitamin B6 content ensures optimal functioning of the brain, bolstering memory, mood and concentration. These tiny seed pods are also laden with calcium, phosphorous, two vital minerals that fortify bones, joints, besides comprising iron, for healthy red blood cell synthesis and smooth blood circulation in the system.

Moreover, manila tamarind encompasses a treasure trove of phytonutrients that hold antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, antimicrobial and hepatoprotective characteristics. These bioactive compounds include polyphenols, tannins, glycosides like quercetin and kaempferol, which protect the liver from disease, keep diabetes in check and enrich skin and hair health.
