Bio-Nutria Extract for Delicious and Healthy Food

I like to make pastries and desserts a lot. The flavours and colours are very important in make the food more tasty and attractive. I have tried many types of extracts but they are artificial most of the time without any health benefits. So while try and error many extracts, I came across this Bio-Nutria extracts which are natural concentrate. There are four types of extracts by Bio-Nutricia. They are Pandan Leaf, Roselle Hibiscus, Butterfly Pea Flower and Lemongrass.



Bio-Nutria extracts are made from liquid extraction process. Firstly, they will sort and clean the fresh leaves. Then they will size the leaves using vegetable cutter and followed by drying of leaves using fluid bed dryer. Next, sonication by ultrasound, organic extraction, homogenization and microencapsulation. Finally, it will be concentrated using evaporator.

Pandan leaves also called as "Vanilla of the east" have been traditionally used in Malaysia for food colourant, food flavour and also traditional herbs.  Pandan leaf (Pandanus amaryllifolius) was reported to have many flavonoid and active compounds. Previous preliminary study proved that pandan water extract can act as energy booster and aphrodisiac agent. There are many health benefits from this pandan extract such as alkaline pH health balanced body, antioxidant activity, cooling & detoxifying, quick recovery of energy and sports nutrition. These pandan leaves are collected from farms at Bachok (Kelantan), Northern KlangValley (Kuala Selangor, Kluang) and Pontian (Johor).

Roselle, scientifically known as Hibiscus Sabdariffa, is a shrub belonging to the Malvaceae family. Due to its sourness, it is known as sour tea in some countries. Roselle hibiscus has its flower (calyx), seeds and leaves that can be used in pharmaceutical and food industries. It has been used as therapeutic plant for centuries. Traditionally, it treats toothaches, urinary tract infections, colds and even hangovers. The flower of the Roselle hibiscus has the brilliant red colour and unique flavor making it a valuable food product. It can serve as a colourant in many cuisine including bakery because the color is stable upon high heating temperature. This extract contains natural vitamins and minerals such as calcium and potassium that quenches thirst and revitalises the body. The drink reportedly possesses anti-hypertensive, diuretic and mild laxative properties. Roselle hibiscus contains abundant of natural antioxidants such as vitamin C and anthocyanins that bring colour and health benefits. There are many health benefits from Roselle hibiscus such as antioxidant, anti-cancer properties, weight loss, boost immune system, anti-diabetes and controls hypertension.

Butterfly pea flower originated from tropical Asia, but now widely distributed in Central and South America, India and China. The blue colour flower is popular in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines as an edible food dye and also brewed into tea. The butterfly pea flower is unique as the extracted dye has the ability to change colours depending on the pH of any ingredient that is added to it. At its first brew, the beverage has a deep, midnight blue colour but a squeeze of lemon or any acidic liquid, can change its colour to violet and further to pink. It is known as Bunga Telang in Malaysian or Indonesian. In Malaysia, it is often used to make nyonya kuih, blue rice nasi lemak, nyonya dumpling and nasi kerabu. This natural dye is also easy and convenient to be used in all purpose with blue colouring in baking and food decorating. Butterfly pea is highly valued in Ayurvedic medicine and has been used for memory enhancer, anti stress, anxiolytic, anti depressant, anti convulsant, tranquilizing and sedative agent. There are many health benefits of butterfly pea flower such as anti-inflammation, improve reproductive health, anti cancer, antioxidant, anti diabetes, prevent cell aging and eye sight.

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is one of the largely cultivated medicinal plants for its essential oils in parts of Asia, Africa and America. It has a fresh, lemony aroma and a citrus flavour. It is a common ingredientin soups, curries, laksa and tomyam. One of the most popular ways to enjoy lemongrass is in tea. Lemongrass is also used as a folk remedy to promote sleep, relieve pain, boost immunity and also as bug repellent. There are many health benefits of lemon grass such as anti inflammatory and relieve pain, antioxidant, reduces body lipid and and glucose level, promote healthy digestion and boosting red blood cell levels.



After learned about all these benefits, I was even more excited to try them. I decided to start with jelly. I made three flavours of nata de coco jelly using pandan, roselle hibiscus and butterfly pea flower extract. It was so easy to use these extracts. I just poured them little bit into my jelly mixture and mixed them well and let them harden. The outcome was excellent. The taste and fragrance of the jellies were so nice because of these extract. My brother requested me to do more jelly for him after ate these jellies.



For lemongrass extract, I decided to mix it in my ginger tea. The aroma of the lemongrass in my tea made my tea more appetizing  and gave a calming feel when i drank it. Since then whenever I have my tea, I never forget to add the lemongrass extract in it.



I am glad I found these beneficial extracts. They are very helpful for my daily cooking. Apart from making my food delicious, they make my food healthy too.
