Global packaged edible flower market: Edible flowers as garnishing agents
Edible flowers, owing to their vibrant and attractive colors, are in great demand for garnishing and decorating a slew of food and beverage products. For example, pansies, when sugared and dipped in egg white, can transform the appearance of a cake. Nasturtium and borage are bright-colored flowers used to make salads more attractive and presentable. Small and medium-sized edible flowers such as pansy, rose, lavender, and viola can be frozen into ice cubes to make summer drinks. Moreover, edible flowers are in high demand by chefs and bartenders of high-end restaurants to flaunt their artistic skills. This has been identified as a positive trend for the global packaged edible flower market.
Many dishes and food items have seen a marked improvement in their organoleptic properties with the use of edible flowers as part of the ingredients. It has been found that flowers that are deeper in color are very high in antioxidant content. They abound in vitamin A, C, D, and E. Edible flowers contain phenolic compounds that offer antioxidant values. A moderate level of phenolic compounds in the diet can help in preventing heart diseases and even some cancers, says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on food.
