Amla

Phyllanthus emblica

Amla3

The Amla or Indian Gooseberry is a small leafy tree that grows throughout India and bears an edible fruit. Amla oil is extracted from its seeds and pulp. The amla fruit is often referred to as the "Indian Gooseberry" because of its edible, very tart taste. The pectin content makes it ideal for jam and chutneys. The tree begins to yield fruit from the third year onwards and the productivity levels are good. Amla oil is prepared from dried amla berries, which have been soaked in coconut oil for several days. This oil is one of the world's oldest natural hair conditioners.
Other Names: Indian Gooseberry

Amla

Research in the US has shown that Amla does not contain any Vit. C . It is the polyphenols (tanins) that give the taste.
