dc.description.abstractHibiscus sabdariffa Linn. var. sabdariffa, commonly known as Sorrel or Lal Ambari is widely grown in Africa and many countries in the Caribbean and Latin America as an important commercial crop for its uses in food, feed, medicine and aesthetic value. In India also it is cultivated on a small scale for edible calyces and ornamental purposes in home gardens. It is used as medicine, herbal tea, and safer food colouring agent especially in confectionaries but to a small extent. The information available in literature and author’s observations on possibilities of making a soft drink by utilizing its colouring constituent and sour taste have been discussed in this paper to promote the potential of this plant in manufacturing a natural and medicinal soft drink and food items like chutney and sauces.en_US
