    Product Description

    Origin of Dried Kokum

    Kokum is indigenous to the Western Ghats of India, and has been a part of the country’s history for centuries. The fruit’s recognition is still limited to the subcontinent of Southeast Asia.

    Source of our Kokum

    Our Kokum grows in the wild in Kudal, Sindhudurg. Where only the best fruit are harvested and dried. Traditionally Kokum is dried with salt or a preservative, however we have convinced our farmers to give us a pure kokum free of additives.

    Taste

    Kokum is sweet, but acidic. It has a juicy texture common among other fruits in the mangosteen family: each of the fruit’s five to eight sections has edible, watery yet potent flesh surrounding a malleable flat seed.

    Dried kokum peel tastes exceptionally sour and metallic, with no trace of sweetness. The lack of sugar gives the fruit a salty disposition, not unlike fresh cranberry.

    The fruit is seldom consumed raw and is instead used as a flavoring agent in curries or drinks.

    Nutritional Value

    Kokum has not undergone a formal nutritional analysis. It is, however, high in vitamin C, low in fat and calories, low sugar and high in fiber.
