Basil seed


 

this is my funny experience.. today I try to make some food recipe for bazaar in Mega Bazaar Computer Malang 2012.. At noon we buy all of the material for our product. especially basil seed for adding in syrop..

We don’t check our material because the air is so hot and we want to go home immediately..
At home after we make onigiri, we want to make basil syrop. But when i search the basil seed i don’t find them.. woowwww…


Bisa dilihat pada gambar di atas. saya biasanya membeli basil dalam bentuk dia sudah tercelup dalam air dan dilapisi oleh selaput tipis. Nah, di dalam barang belanjaan saya, saya tidak menemukan adanya selasih seperti biasa yang saya beli.. Melainkan saya menemukan bubuk hitam seperti wijen. Saya juga membeli wijen pada saat itu. Kami bertiga pada saat itu (chai, cepuk) mengira bahwa si penjual toko salah memberi wijen hitam dan wijen putih, dengan bodohnya kami bertiga berdebat mengenai wijen hitam. hahhahaha..hingga berdebat menuduh si penjual toko.

tetapi beberapa saat kemudian terpikirkan “masak iya penjual toko yang sudah terpercaya itu salah memberi barang belanjaan” sepertinya tidak mungkin.. akhirnya iseng saya masukkan biji itu ke dalam air, hahahahhaha.. ternyata dan ternyata itu memang biji selasih kering. Ya maklum saya tidak pernah melihat wujud keringnya.. Ketika dimasukkan ke dlaam air biji kering selasih itu secara perlahan akan membentuk suatu lapisan putih pelindung dirinya dan lama kelamaan akan mengambang di air (awalnya mengendap di dasar wadah)

hahahha,, saya malu.. saya sekolah di food technology.. tapi hal sepele seperti ini bisa kelewatan :)
inilah buktinya >> The basil seeds, when soaked in water, become rubber like and very soft in texture. These are then used in a number of drinks like sharbat and in sweet dishes
inilah gunanya pengalaman, dimana-mana pengalaman memang guru yang terbaik :)

Basil, the common name for Ocimum basilicum, is a popular sweet herb of the Mint Family esteemed for flavoring and formerly used for medicinal purposes. An annual of the tropics, it is tender and should not be attempted outdoors until the weather is warm.

One canned basil seed drink sold in the United States contains 96 calories, 21 g carbohydrates, 21 g sugars and 2 g of fiber. Because of the swollen seeds and their fiber, the drink may curb hunger. >> good for DIET

Basil is an aromatic, low growing herb the leaves of which have a bright greento purple ovate colour, and is grown in warm, tropical climate. It belongs to the botanical family of ‘Ocimum Bailicum’, more commonly known as mint. It is grown on a mass scale in central and tropical Asia and Africa and has been cultivated for as long as 5000 years.

- Basil herb contains polyphenolic flavonoids like orientin and vicenin. These compounds were tested in vitro laboratory studies for possible anti-oxidant protection against radiation-induced lipid per-oxidation in mouse liver.

- Basil herb contains exceptionally high levels of beta-carotene, vitamin A, cryptoxanthin, lutein andzea-xanthin. These compounds help act as protective scavengers against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various disease process. Zeaxanthin, a yellow flavonoid carotenoid compound, is selectively absorbed into the retinal macula lutea where it found to filter harmful UV rays from reaching retina. Herbs, fruits, and vegetables that are rich in this compound help to protect from age related macular disease (AMRD), especially in the elderly.

- An important essential oil, eugenol has been found to have anti-inflammatory function by acting against the enzyme cycloxygenase(COX), which mediates inflammatory cascade in the body. This enzyme-inhibiting effect of the eugenol in basil makes it an important remedy for symptomatic relief in individuals with inflammatory health problems like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and inflammatory bowel conditions. Oil of basil herb has also been found to have anti-infective functions by inhibiting many pathogenic bacteria like Staphylococcus, Enterococci, shigella and Pseudomonas.
