Tamarind juice concentrate is one of the many types of commercial-grade products supplied by iTi Tropicals.
Tamarind comes from a tropical fruit tree that grows extensively in dry climates throughout the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and the West Indies. The individual fruits or pods are usually 5 to 14 centimeters long and 2 centimeters wide. The ripened fruit contains 1-12 brown seeds surrounded by a sticky, edible pulp. It is both sweet and sour, and its ripened sticky pulp has a musky flavor that is an important ingredient in many Caribbean sauces.
Tamarind brings a sweet and savory aspect to any product. It can be eaten fresh but can also be incorporated as an ingredient in a variety of applications. Tamarind is an important ingredient in Worcestershire sauce, as well as some barbecue sauces and ketchups. The fruit concentrate makes delicious chutneys, curries, jams, candies, and juices, and can be added to soups and marinades. Its acidity pairs well with sugar, chilies, and other flavors.
