What is the Qarshi Jam-e-Shirin?
A cordial or squash is usually a fruit flavored syrup used to prepare delicious drinks by mixing or diluting it into water. In the subcontinent, rose flavored cordials have been popular for a very long time. The Qarshi Jam-e-Shirin is one of the most ubiquitous and popular brands available in the subcontinental region. Rose flavored cordials such as the Qarshi Jam e Shirin are used to cool down and beat the summer heat.
This syrup is made of refined sugar flavored with distillations of various herbs to create a thick squash. The herbs used to prepare the Qarshi Jam-e-Shirin include sandalwood and vetiver, both of which are known to be anti inflammatory, analgesic and having a cooling effect. Drinking a chilled serving of the Qarshi Jam e Shirin helps you to immediately cool down after strenuous exercise or in blistering summer days.
A complete list of ingredients used to make the Qarshi Jam e Shirin is given further below. Some of the natural ingredients used include Damask rose, Indian sandalwood, vetiver, Thatch screwpine and stone flowers.
In addition, sodium benzoate and citric acid are used as preservatives in this herbal syrup. Citric acid is a commonly occurring organic acid present in many fruits including oranges, lemons, limes, berries and pineapples to name a few.
Sodium benzoate has been the subject of some controversy as it can form benzene (a known carcinogen) when combined with other ingredients. However, most products, including the Qarshi Jam e Shirin, simply do not contain the other ingredients – ascorbic acid (E300) and potassium benzoate (E212) – or contain them in very low quantities, as approved for use by the US FDA and the various European Food Standards Agencies.
None of the ingredients are known to cause any side effects, making the Qarshi Jam-e-Shirin completely safe for drinking.
The Qarshi Jam-e-Shirin has a delicious, exotic and sweet herbal taste, primarily of rose and sandalwood.
