What is the best way to store the flowers?
Fresh: Place your bowl of flowers in the refrigerator immediately upon receipt.
Dried, pressed: To preserve the quality of the edible flowers, we recommend storing them in a dark, dry place, preferably in their original packaging.
How long can I keep the edible flowers?
Fresh: The fresh edible flowers stay good for +- 3 to 4 days, if kept refrigerated.
Pressed, dried: Dried and pressed edible flowers generally have a shelf life of 6 months to 1 year. The shelf life can be extended by storing the edible flowers in a dry and cool place. As the edible flowers age, the scent, color or texture is lost.
Are all flowers edible?
Only specially grown flowers are edible. At Floral Delight we offer carefully selected edible flowers, which are safe for consumption and suitable for culinary applications.
Not every flower is edible. Avoid consuming flowers from bouquets or the wild, as some can cause toxins or allergic reactions. It is crucial to choose flowers that are consciously grown and labeled as edible, such as our selection available at Floral Delight. Our edible flowers are also Global GAP certified.
Are edible flowers healthy?
Yes, edible flowers can be a beautiful addition to dishes and can provide various health benefits. In general, edible flowers contain nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They may also contain fiber, depending on the type of flour.
In addition, certain edible flowers may offer specific health benefits. For example, some flowers, such as marigold and pansies, are traditionally used for their anti-inflammatory properties. Other flowers, such as lavender and chamomile, are known for their calming effects and are sometimes used in teas or aromatherapy.
However, it is important to note that edible flowers are usually consumed in small amounts, mainly as a decoration or flavor enhancer, and so they do not typically contribute significantly to daily nutritional requirements.
Are the Edible Flowers grown sustainably?
Sure! At Floral Delight we attach great importance to sustainability. Our flowers are grown with great care and attention to the environment. We use sustainable cultivation methods that avoid harmful chemicals. To combat pests, we use biological enemies, so we use natural solutions.
To save the environment, we pack our fresh flowers in recycled plastic containers. Various experiments have shown that this packaging ensures that the flowers have the longest shelf life. Our process is designed in such a way that there is no waste. We use all flowers by pressing and drying them.
Where do your edible flowers come from?
Our edible flowers are grown in our own nursery in Westland. The fresh edible flowers are shipped on the day of harvest. We press and dry the flowers immediately after harvest, so that we can guarantee the highest quality.
Can you eat edible flowers if you have an allergy?
If you are hypersensitive to flowers, we do not recommend eating edible flowers.
Are edible flowers suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
Yes, edible flowers are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. They contain no animal ingredients and can be a wonderful and tasty addition to vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Wat zijn gevriesdroogde eetbare bloemen?
Vriesdrogen is een speciale techniek om het vocht uit de eetbare bloemen te halen. De bloemen worden eerst bevroren, vervolgens worden de bloemen onder vacuüm gedroogd.
Dankzij dit proces blijven de natuurlijke smaak, kleur en textuur beter behouden dan bij traditioneel drogen. Door het onttrekken van vocht zijn de bloemen tot wel een jaar lang houdbaar.
