May Flavor of the Month: Tamarind

Sweet, sour, tangy, and tart, tamarind flavor is similar to citrus fruit and can be paired with other sweet and savory flavors for the perfect supplement.

Tamarind Origin

Tamarind is a tropical fruit with a sweet-tart flavor that is indigenous to Africa but has long been associated with Indian cuisine. The fruit eventually was introduced to Mexico and Central America in the 16th century, where it soon became a staple part of the cuisine. The tamarind tree is part of the pea family, growing large pods containing seeds with sticky, pulpy flesh that can be used in cooking. Tamarind is often found in paste form in the grocery store, used to enhance both sweet and savory dishes. 

The Taste

Tamarind’s unique sweet-sour flavor makes it a popular additive in dishes, candies, gummies, juices, and more. The flavor will depend on how ripe the fruit is; the riper it is the sweeter it can be. The flavor notes can also be adjusted when paired with other citrus fruits. It can often be mixed with a sweeter fruit flavor to help balance out the tanginess. With its rich and distinctive taste, tamarind can add a burst of tropical flair to any gummy supplement.

Health Benefits

Beyond its unique taste, tamarind offers a host of health benefits. Tamarind is full of antioxidants that help prevent cell damage caused by oxidants and support overall immune health. Oxidative cell damage can cause premature aging as well as chronic diseases. Including plenty of antioxidants in your diet can help protect against various health concerns that come with aging.

Tamarind is an excellent source of amino acids and contains phenolic compounds. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, essential for building and repairing damaged tissue. 

Tamarind is full of B vitamins that benefit brain function and the central nervous system. The fruit provides a great source of magnesium and calcium, both of which help maintain strong bones and reduce the risk of fractures and osteoporosis.
