Delicious seeds of the lotus

Did you know the seeds inside the lotus flower’s placenta are edible? They’re delicious too.

In ancient chinese medicine, the seeds symbolise all four cardinal elements of nature; earth, water, air and heat.

These little gems are packed with vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, zinc and numerous health promoting antioxidants.

Fresh as well as dried lotus seeds can be eaten raw or cooked and served in soups, salads or wherever your culinary imagination takes you.
