Also referred to as Indian gooseberry or amlaki, the fruits are considered energetically cooling and a tridoshic tonic herb in Ayurveda. Additionally, dried amla has been traditionally enjoyed for its nutritious value and wellness-supporting properties. Our dehydrated amla berry can be used in extracts, infusions, and herbal formulations.
Amla, or Indian gooseberry, is the fruit of a small to medium-sized deciduous tree native to India. The berries are greenish yellow with a fibrous inner texture. Harvested in autumn by hand, they have a sour, bitter, and astringent taste. In Hinduism, the amla tree is considered sacred to the goddess Lakshmi. A much-beloved staple of traditional Ayurvedic medicine, amla is considered a cooling pitta herb. The high tannin content also makes amla an excellent fixative for dyes, leading to its frequent incorporation into inks. Our dehydrated amla consists of the fruit with the seeds removed.
