Cochin Melon Powder (Gac)
Cochin Melon (our abbreviation for its botanical name Momordica Cochinchinensis Spreng) is popular throughout Southeast Asia for coloring rice dishes and baked goods, as it has a beautiful orange hue. But it also qualifies as a superfruit, with 50x the lycopene of tomatoes, and high amounts of beta carotene, minerals and anti-inflammatories. We make no medical claims but it is purported to help control sugar levels in Type 2 diabetes.
It's simple to make Vietnamese sticky rice with Cochin Melon Powder, just add about 1.25 teaspoons of the powder to one cup of sticky rice (and a cup of water) and cook till a proper consistency. We use it in smoothies, where it really adds a lot of nutrition and an interesting mild fruity flavor. Some say it tastes like sweet carrots (probably because of all the natural beta carotene!).
