Lyophilized mini pansy

The lyophilized mini pansy or viola is a flower belonging to the Violaceae family. Its taste is sweet, with an slightly bittersweet touch in the mouth, and it reminds of nuts. It can be said that its flavour reminds of corn salad. The colours of the mini pansy are varied: yellow, white, purple and violet. When lyophilized, this edible flower has a crunchy texture with certain volatility.

To use it in the kitchen, it is not necessary to re-hydrate the lyophilized flower. It can be used to create contrasts depending on the recipe. It must be taken into account that as soon as the flower is in contact with some liquid element, the crunchy texture of the flower will be lost.

The lyophilized mini pansy can be used with any kind of ingredient: salads, vegetables, red and white meats, all kind of fish…etc

How is the flower lyophilized?

Lyophilization is another way to preserve the mini pansy. 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 mini pansy in a dry place without direct light. You can store it next to the spices or in a kitchen cabinet.
