Preparation

  • Remove the leaves from the rhubarb stem, as they are poisonous.

After removing the wood, the rhubarb stem (s) are washed well under running water and then dried with a paper towel.

Observations
Rhubarb syrup with sugar obtained by maceration can be stored, hermetically sealed, in a cool and dark place for up to 3 months.
We recommend consumption within a maximum of 30 days of sale.

Rhubarb syrup with sugar obtained by maceration is much more valuable in terms of nutritional values, than the classic rhubarb syrup, obtained by boiling with sugar, because it has not been subjected to a thermal process. However, we recommend the rhubarb maceration with honey.

Administration

Rhubarb syrup can be consumed both for therapeutic purposes and as a soft drink with plain or mineral water, having a very pleasant taste.

Consume one tablespoon (~ 30 ml) taken as such or in combination with various liquids when you feel the need. However, it is not recommended to exceed 5 servings a day, as it can become a diuretic.
It is not recommended to consume it in the form of juice immediately after a meal.

For therapeutic purposes, one tablespoon before meals is recommended, 3 times a day.
