A STUDY ON AN ISLAND JUICE FROM FLOWERS

Introduction:
Flowers can be seen in different places, and can be seen in different types. All flowers
have a distinctive size, color and fragrance. Whether eye-catching or inconspicuous,
Flowers are seldom used for drinks. Most herb flowers have a taste that's similar to the
leaf, but spicier. The concept of using fresh edible flowers in cooking is not new. Today,
many restaurant chefs and innovative home cooks garnish their entrees with flower
blossoms for a touch of elegance. But who could have guessed that with the use of
creativity, its sweet juice can be made into a delicious thirst quencher.

The researchers can make use of the God-given gifts in a unique and imaginative sense
and also use their God-given talents and intelligence to create a splendid new idea. An
interesting research project like this gives them a sense of curiosity and creativity. This
research project gives them the inkling of how to be practical and resourceful. The
investigators have observed that Santan flowers have a sweet liquid that comes out when
they sip the stem of the flower. This observation really convinced them to push through
this kind of topic. According to what the researchers have discovered, with the aid of the
internet, flower juices are made as a national drink to other countries and some people
have them as a refreshing beverage.

Statement of the problem:


The study seeks to answer the following questions:

Can flowers be used as an ingredient in making a refreshing beverage while finding out
and knowing if the flowers about to be used are safe to drink?

Will it be delicious and turn out to be great tasting?
Significance:
With this study, the researchers can learn that flowers are not only used for decoration
and displays but are also used to create delectable foods and drinks. Since our world
today has so many thirst quenchers that quenches our thirst like fizzy drinks, but it ends
in that. Yes, they quench your thirsts but it also harms your body, so the researchers have
made it possible for you to try something new aside from that carbonated drinks that
when you drink it regularly can harm your body, so the researchers thought of a juice out
of flower that can quench your thirst, satisfy your taste buds, and which are sure to be
unique tasting.The community will have a discovery of the beautiful taste of flowers and
gain more knowledge and creativity on its uses and what they can make out of it.
Filipinos will have a new and refreshing juicemade of flowers which are sure to attract
people. We will have an original and exceptional tasting island drink which can be
enjoyed by every member of the family.
Delimitation and limitation of the study:
For about one week, the group was trying their best to dig for mire vital information that
could help them figure more about the nature of flower juice. Each member of the group
got most of their information from the internet. But the main foundation of the topic and
its information is from the Thai restaurant “Sawasdee”
Materials and Methods:
In performing this experiment, the researchers used two to three cups of dried flowers
(chrysanthemum or rose), one to two cups of sugar, one or two of the following optional
flavorings:
o
one-half teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
o
one half cup lemon juice
o
one cup pineapple juice or orange juiceThey prepared the needed materials which
included a saucepan, blender, strainer, sugar, cup and bowl. After the researchers
gathered all the materials needed, they briefly rinse the dried flowers in cool water to
clean it and remove any unseen insect that maybe present. Then, the researchers picked
out the petals of the flowers since these are the only part of the flower which they will use
for guarantee of safety. The researchers first tried to extract the juice out of the flower by
using the blender. The flowers ended up very finely minced and only very little amount
of juice was extracted. Seeing that this process would not be of much convenience, the
researchers made another process. In a saucepan they heated three to four cups of cold
water. As soon as the water began to boil, they added the dried petals. They allowed the
flowers to steep for ten minutes. They poured the water from the pot into a pitcher using a
strainer to separate the flowers from the water making sure not to pour any of the flower
sediment into the pitcher. Afterwards, they tasted the outcome then stirred in the sugar.
Add any other flavorings if desired. Finally, the researchers added the ice and chill
completely. The methods the researchers used are found at www.congocookbook.com

and at www.sagekitchen.com.
They did the experiment for about three times. The researchers gathered all these data by
surfing the internet and interviewing the Sawasdee Thai House owner named Soranee
“tata” Supprasiti. They organized data through e-mail and meetings

Analysis of data:
The flower juice which was the final product turned out to have a taste of real flower; one
could actually know that it was made of real flower even if one isn’t told. It truly
captured the true fragrance of the flower we used. Before accomplishing such product,
the researchers used other methods. They tried extracting the juice out of the flower by
using the blender but, the flower ended up finely minced and useless. This show us that it
is best that we do it the way the researchers had it written on their procedures. Minutes
after the researchers added the flower in the boiled water, the aroma of the flower would
actually be noticed. After taking the flower out of the water, the researchers observed that
the water became a yellowish in color. The yellow liquid was already the flower juice.
During their taste-testing, the final product tasted like real tea which was a little bit bitter.
If you add in some sugar, the taste became a little bitter sweet. Aside from regular juices,
it had a unique and different taste which isn’t that delicious if it is made purely out of
flowers but with addition of several flavoring, the taste got to be satisfactory. With this
additional flavor, the taste of the flower juice became similar to that of the Ice Tea. If you
chill the flower juice and add some calamansi it would turn out to be just like the real ice
tea. The next day after doing the experiment, the researchers noticed that the yellowish
water turned to greenish. The tastes still ended up the same.
Recommendation:
The researchers recommend that one should use flowers or choose flowers which have
more juices than others in order to have more liquid with the fact that flowers only have
very little amount of liquid. One should choose the right flower to produce the flavor you
want for the fact that not all flowers taste good. Choose the flavoring fit for making your
juice better tasting. But one very important thing that you need to remember is that not
every flower is edible and great tasting. In fact, sampling some flowers can make you
very, very sick. You also should
NEVER
use pesticides or other chemicals on any part of any plant that produces blossoms you
plan to eat. Identify the flower exactly and eat only edible flowers, and edible parts of
those flowers. Always remember to use flowers sparingly in your recipes due to the
digestive complications that can occur with a large consumption rate .
