  • About

    Dried Lotus Seeds (Bai Lian Zi) are used predominantly in Chinese and Japanese cuisine.

    The seeds are harvested when the seed head is still green, but the seeds within are almost fully developed.

    The bitter germ is then removed, with the seeds being shelled and de-membraned.

    Benefits

  • Dried Lotus Seeds (Bai Lian Zi) are edible seeds that can be eaten raw or cooked.

    They are valued for their nutritional and healing properties and are used in many recipes as well as herbal formulas.

    The seeds have a hard and rough texture and must be soaked in water overnight.
