Hibiscus Powder is made from the hibiscus plant's dried, ground sepals. Often mistaken for flowers themselves, they are the trumpet-shaped, deep burgundy part of the plant that support the flowers on the stem. The sepal continues to grow after hibiscus flowers bloom, eventually forming a fleshy pod that surrounds the seeds. Hibiscus Powder is a finely ground, tart, deep burgundy powder that can be used to flavor warm or cold beverages, soups and sauces, as well as add deep fuchsia color to food and beverages.
