Prickly Water Lily (Euryale ferox)

Scientific Name: The scientific name for the prickly water lily is Euryale ferox.

Manufacturing Process and Family: The prickly water lily is a member of the family Nymphaeaceae, which includes various species of water lilies. It is an aquatic plant that thrives in shallow, stagnant or slow-moving waters. The seeds of Euryale ferox, known as foxnuts or makhana, are harvested for consumption. The process involves collecting mature seeds from the water, cleaning them, and then drying them. The dried seeds are then roasted or popped to make them edible.

Uses: The seeds of the prickly water lily, or makhana, are used as a nutritious snack or ingredient in various dishes. They can be eaten roasted, popped, or ground into flour. Makhana is used in traditional Indian sweets, puddings, and curries. The popped seeds are also incorporated into breakfast cereals, soups, and salads for added texture and nutrition.

Benefits: Makhana is highly regarded for its health benefits. It is a good source of protein, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. The seeds are low in fat, high in fiber, and contain antioxidants, making them beneficial for weight management, heart health, and diabetes control. They are also believed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.
Production Method and Shelf Life: After harvesting, the seeds are sun-dried and then roasted or popped before packaging. Properly stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, makhana can last for several months without losing its quality.
