The main raw material of ice powder is “ice powder tree”, “ice powder tree” scientific name pseudophylla, native to the Americas, mainly distributed in Yunnan, Guangxi and other regions; Guizhou, Hunan, Sichuan and other places are also cultivated.
Ice powder is a special snack in the southwest of China. Especially in hot summer, a bowl of cool ice powder can play a role in relieving heat. What material is ice powder made of? Let’s get to know.
Pseudoplasmosis is an annual erect herb of the genus pseudoplasmosis and Solanaceae, with many branches. Stems erect, riblet, glabrous, up to 1.5 m tall, leaf blade ovate or elliptic, grassy, apex acute or shortly acuminate, base cuneate, both surfaces sparsely hairy; Flowers are solitary in branch axils and opposite to leaves, calyx 5-parted, lobes apex sharp, base heart-shaped arrow-shaped, corolla bell-shaped, light blue, berries spherical, yellow. Seeds light brown, flowering and fruiting in summer and autumn.
Pseudophysalis is native to South America. It is cultivated for medicinal or ornamental purposes in the north and south of China, and it is wild in Hebei, Gansu, Sichuan, Guizhou, Yunnan, Tibet and other provinces and regions; it grows in fields, wasteland or residential areas.
Pseudoacidia is an erect annual herb, much branched. Leaves alternate, petiolate,  stems erect, ribbed, glabrous, 0.4-1.5 m tall, distally interacting unequally dichotomously branched. Oval or oval leaves, herbaceous, 4-12cm long and 2-8cm wide, with sharp or short tapered tips, wedge-shaped bases, rounded coarse teeth or shallow cracks at the edges, and sparse hairs on both sides; The length of petiole is about 1ax 3-1pm 4 of leaf length.
The leaves of Phytolacca pseudoacacia contain phytolactone and phytolactone; the whole grass contains phytolactone; the root contains tropicone and coumarine. The whole grass has sedative, expectorant, heat-clearing, detoxification, cough effect, treatment of mental disease, rabies, cold, rheumatism, scabies and other diseases.
Fake sour slurry is the raw material used to make cool powder (also known as ice powder). After soaking the pseudosour pulp seeds in water for enough time. Filter out the seeds, add an appropriate amount of coagulant (such as lime water, etc.), and after solidifying for a period of time, it is made into a crystal clear, cool taste cool powder, which is a summer health food that reduces inflammation and diuresis, quenches heat and thirst.
