Discover Salep: Natural Emulsifier & Ice-Cream Base

What is salep?

Salep is a 100 % natural food product.
Salep is derived from the tubers of many types of orchids.
These tubers contain a nutritious, starchy polysaccharide (glucomannan) and essential oil. Glucomannan forms a viscous and colloidal solution by swelling in water or milk. It is not sticky like gum. Glucomannan is a natural food additive used as an emulsifier and thickener.  
Salep powder -under the favor of having rich glucomannan- is responsible for the unique textural properties, unique taste, and resistance of dondurma, a stretchable and chewy ice-cream of Turkish origin.  Thanks to the strong characteristics of salep; dondurma can be made by using only milk, sugar, and salep.
Salep is also used for traditional winter beverage is served hot with cinnamon.
