Durian is an exotic delicacy revered as 'King of the Fruits', a title believed to be based on its terrific appearance and powerful odour. It has a delicious yet distinct flavour that is variously described as having notes of vanilla, banana, papaya, caramel, custard or even, some say, onion.
Highly prized for its aphrodisiac properties, durian is high in tryptophan, the 'happy nutrient'. It also contains a high amount of vitamin C, potassium and is a good source of carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats.
Durian fruit is traditionally used to flavour a wide variety of sweets such as candy, ice cream and milkshakes. At inSpiral Lounge they make a delicious Durian Colada which is a nutritious combination of durian, pineapples, mangoes, dates, banana and raw coconut.
This 100% natural, raw, freeze-dried Durian, is of the highly prized Mon Thong variety, widely regarded by connoisseurs as the most delicious, highly flavoured of the various species.
