Dried Boat Sterculia Seed (Pang Da Hai) is a deciduous tropical nut. The seeds of this plant are used as herbal remedies particularly in Indonesian and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Pang Da Hai is simply translated as “fat sea”, because its cracked rind will expand and almost fill an entire cup once it is placed in boiling water. Therefore, plenty of water is required when this nut is cooked or soaked for culinary purposes.

- May help with sore and scratchy throat issues
- Can aid healing from tonsillitis
- May assist with acute pharyngitis
- Can help loss of voice
- May reduce phlegm and coughs
