Tamarind (Tamarinus indica) is a tropical fruit famous for its special benefits such as ease of digestion, mild laxative effect, and relief of cold and sore throat. It is highly nutritious and is believed to be an elixir of life and cure-all for ailments. Tamarind is extensively used in cuisines around the world.
There are two types of tamarind:
Sweet tamarind: found in Thailand
Sour tamarind: found in Asia and Africa
The factories we work with (See the section Factories) select the best sweet tamarind to produce various forms of products such as fresh tamarind, ready-to eat tamarind, tamarind juice and juice concentrate, and tamarind paste.
