While the hibiscus is known as a very ornamental bloom, gracing many gardens, it has an economic role to play as well, serving as a product of high significance in both the food and cosmetic industries. This dual nature of the plant arises from the fact that the hibiscus is both highly nutritious and also the source of a safe coloring agent that can be used even in foods.
The periodical, 'Food Science and Human WellnessWellness', explored the viability of hibiscus-generated food coloring for cupcakes and found the resulting product to be both cost-effective and 'clean, ' with the added benefit of adding necessary flavonoids into the human diet. These anthocyanins, aside from the nourishment they provide, appear to be linked with the easing of numerous health complaints, including, hypertension, inflammatory conditions, coughing and excess weight.
- The Helwan University of Egypt recently funded a research study to evaluate the hibiscus calyces extract and it's perceived, biochemical and sensory effect on the properties of functional cupcakes.
- Studies have affirmed that drinkers of Hibiscus tea had decreased blood pressure after a consistent month long use of the tea.
- Because it has both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial capabikities, hibiscus is an ingredient promoted for the ammelioration of cough and cold symptoms.
"Extracts from hibiscus calyces could be used as a natural food coloring, which can provide health benefits at the same time, according to a study published in the journal Food Science and Human Wellness."
