Title: WTB: Tylosema esculentum seeds
Post by: phamdangquangvinh on August 08, 2018, 12:50:31 AM
I would like to buy some Tylosema esculentum seeds, 10 - 40 seeds, shipping to Vietnam, paying by Paypal.
Common Name: Marama Bean.
Edible Uses:
Seed - cooked. After roasting, the seeds have a delicious, nutty flavour similar to coffee beans or roasted cashews[301]. They may be boiled with maize meal or ground into flour to prepare a porridge or a coffee- or cocoa-like drink[299]. The roasted seeds have sometimes been used as a culinary substitute for almonds[299, 1309]. The seeds have a protein content around 30% (approaching that of the soya bean) and an oil content around 40% (approaching that of the peanut)[301].
The immature seeds and stems may be eaten cooked as a vegetable or in soups[299].
A coffee-like beverage can be made from the seeds[317].
An edible oil is obtained from the seed[301]. Similar to almond oil in consistency and taste[299, 301]. Golden-yellow, with a nutty odour and a pleasant, although slightly bitter flavour[299, 1309]
Tuber - cooked. The sweet-tasting tuber can be baked, boiled or roasted[301, 317]. Young tubers have a sweet and pleasant taste and the texture has been described as similar to that of artichoke[299]. Tubers older than 2 years become fibrous and bitter and are usually not eaten, but they are an important emergency source of water for humans and animals[299].
