Lyophilized alyssum

The lyophilized alyssum flower, also known as Lobularia maritima, has a small size and its colours vary from purple to white. This edible flower blooms in bouquet and its flowers are small.

It offers a crunchy texture with a herbal flavor but containing sweet and floral notes. Due to its shape and texture, it can be used in all areas of gastronomy, creating different contrasts. For example, on an ice cream or on a sauce. It can also be re-hydrated to achieve a more juicy texture when using the flower in a cake or a salad.

How is the flower lyophilized?

Lyophilization is another way to preserve alyssum. It consists of dehydrating the edible flower, subjecting it to rapid freezing and eliminating the ice subsequently by slight heating under vacuum which transforms it into steam. These are the states that follow the process of lyophilization:

1º Freezing of the edible flower
2º The pressure is reduced so that the frozen water sublimates and passes to a gaseous state without passing through a liquid state.

Thanks to this process, the molecular state of the flower can be preserved, and therefore its organoleptic properties, while maintaining an aspect very similar to the original. In other words, a long-lasting ingredient with a longer shelf life is achieved.

This product does not contain humidity, so it can be preserved for a minimum of 2 years. But it can last up to 5 years. We recommend storing the lyophilized alyssum in a dry place without direct light. You can store it next to the spices or in a kitchen cabinet.
