Edible Rose Water or pure Gulab Ark- a perfect luxurious gut cooling ingredient for cooking to add subtle flavor of Rose Petals to your desserts, biryani, milk or even drinking water.
How is pure edible rose water made?
Our Edible Rose Water, pure Gulab Ark is traditionally steam distilled using freshly plucked Damask Rose Petals grown without any pesticides or fertilizers & harvested early morning in Uttarakhand. It is not a by product of rose essential oil. We only produce ROSE WATER. This process retains the natural therapeutic aroma & flavor of rose petals, giving a clear rose water unlike some other red-pink colored waters that contain added colours.
Why to choose Damask Rose Water?
“Damask” is a variety of roses that originated in West Asia and now grows in some parts of Uttarakhand. Unlike traditional Indian roses, this rare variety of rose is Pink in color and has to be harvested before sunrise according to what farmers say. They say that after a full bloom, sunlight can reduce their aroma and goodness and hence they get to work as early as 4 A.M. to collect all the flowers.
Also, studies have shown that Damask rose is richer than desi gulab in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which makes our Edible Damask Rose Water perfect for consumption.
