Lotus root nutrition facts

Crunchy, delicate flavored lotus root is an under-water edible rhizome of lotus plant. Since centuries, the lotus rhizome has held high esteem in oriental regions, especially in Chinese and Japanese cultures. Almost all the parts of the plant: root, young flower stalks, and seeds are being used in the cuisine.

 

Lotus plant is an herbaceous, perennial aquatic plant belonging to Nelumbonaceae family. Scientific name: Nelumbo nucifera.

 

Lotus root is grown as annual root vegetable crop in customized ponds. Although lotus can be raised from the seeds, commercially, the rhizomes with meristems (growing points) are preferred for cultivation since it takes less time for crop production. Rhizome activity in the plant usually coincides with the appearance of large floating leaves about 5-6 months after implantation.

 

The rhizomes grow underwater in mud. They are actually modified tubers storing energy in the form of starch. The rhizome develops into sausage-like three to five jointed nodes of about 2-4 feet length. Each rhizome segment features smooth, grey-white color and measure about 10-20 cm in length, 6-10 cm in diameter. Internally, the root has white, crunchy flesh with mild sweet, water chestnut like flavor. The cut sections reveal visually appealing display of symmetrically arranged air canals (holes) traversing along the length of the root.

 

The lotus fruit is an enlarged receptacle akin to sunflower head where in numerous edible seeds embedded in its head.
