  • Agromyx Black Velvet Tamarind Fruit Powder

Black Velvet Tamarind Fruit Powder (500g)

This beautiful fruit can is found in some West African countries such as Ghana where it is known as Yoyi, Sierra Leone and Senegal. Also scientifically called Dialium guineense Wild, the black velvet tamarind is potentially a great source of nutrients for human food.

Its sticky pulp is a rich source of non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) or dietary-fiber such as gums, hemicelluloses, mucilage, pectin and tannins. 100 g of fruit pulp provides 5.1 or over 13% of dietary fiber. NSP or dietary fiber in the food increases its bulk and augments bowel movements thereby help prevent constipation. The fiber also binds to toxins in the food thereby help protect the colon mucus membrane from cancer-causing chemicals.

Black Velvet Tamarind is rich in tartaric acid. Tartaric acid is a powerful anti-oxidant.

It also contains many volatile phytochemicals such as limonene, geraniol, safrole, cinnamic acid, methyl salicylate, pyrazine and alkyl¬thiazoles. Together these compounds account for the medicinal properties of tamarind.

This fruit is a good source of minerals like copper, potassium, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Iron is essential for red blood cell production and as a co-factor for cytochrome oxidases enzymes.

It is also rich in many vital vitamins, including thiamin, vitamin-A, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin-C. Much of these vitamins plays antioxidant as well as co-factor functions for enzyme metabolism inside the body.
