紅皮湘蓮子 無芯 開邊湘莲子 (16oz/包)

蓮子有很多別名,有時叫湘蓮、湖蓮,是用其出產的地方而命名,如「湘蓮」為產於湖南、湖北的蓮子;而「湖蓮」則為產於江蘇、浙江的蓮子。湘蓮,生長在湘江下游地區,氣候濕潤、四季分明,年平均氣溫17度左右,且陽光充足雨量豐富,形成湘蓮生產的有利氣候條件。因其蛋白質含量高,脂肪含量低,煮食易爛,肉質細膩、糯香鮮甜,口感好等特色,被稱為「中國第一蓮子」。

其中,紅蓮子為未去種皮的蓮子,而白蓮子則是已去種皮的蓮子。湘蓮子用之煲湯,煲出來的湯色偏深紅色、湘蓮子營養價值高,除具有健脾益腎功效外,亦適合婦女及氣血運行不順的人士。

紅蓮子本身就富含有豐富的鈣、磷、鉀等人體所必需的微量元素以及多種維生素。而且紅蓮子能夠促進人體的吸收,增強新陳代謝,而且對於貧血腎虛也能起到很好的保護作用,比起白蓮子營養價值更高。而且無添加防腐劑或熏硫,安全食用。

在中醫藥學中,蓮子被譽為「脾之果」。蓮子性平,味甘、澀,入脾經、腎經、胃經、心經及膀胱等經脈,具補脾益胃、益腎固精、健脾止瀉、養心安神的功效。

現代醫學顯示,蓮子含高碳水化合物、蛋白質及脂肪、鈣、磷、鐵、維生素B、胡蘿蔔素等人體所需營養成分,是男女老少皆宜的養生補品。

食用處理方法:1.先用水清洗一下,去除表面灰塵  2.建議煮前先浸泡1-2小時  3. 明火煲2小時左右,如用壓力鍋45-60分鐘即可。

Lotus Seeds /Xiang Lian Zi (16oz/Bag)

Like Lian zi, this is the mature seed of the water lily plant. The differences between Xianglianzi (lotus seed with brown inner hull) and Bailianzi (white lotus seed) are as follows:

  1. Xianglian seeds (with hull) have high protein content and a low fat content. It has delicate meat, a sweet glutinous taste, and total sugar and protein content rank first in China's three major lotus species.

Both Xianglianzi and Bailianzi invigorate qi, nourish the heart and kidney, calm the mind, strengthen the spleen and stomach, etc. However, Xianglianzi focuses more on qi and blood, while Bailianzi (white lotus seed) focuses more on clearing nervous disorders.
