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. 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.
Kokum has not undergone a formal nutritional analysis. It is, however, high in vitamin C, low in fat and calories, low in sugar, and high in fiber.
Our Kokum grows in the wild in Kudal, Sindhudurg. Where only the best fruit is 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.
