The fruits of the gooseberry bush are small, weighing around 0.1-0.2 ounces (3-6grams) each. They may vary in color and can be green, red, yellow-white. Amla provides an eclectic mix of flavors that could not be compared to any of the common fruit types.it has a sour, astringent taste combined with a sweet and bitter undertone. Aloe vera is a stemless or very short-stemmed plant growing to 60-100cms (24-39inches) tall, spreading by offsets. The leaves are thick and fleshy, green to grey-green, with some varieties showing white flecks on their upper and lower stem surfaces. Jams are made by combining sugar, pulp, and/or puree from one or more types of fruit, water, and jelling agents due to the increasing number of health problems occurring in society, caused by obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes, the demand for the products with reduced calorie content as increased on the market. Therefore particularly low-sugar jams in which some of the sucrose has been replaced by sweeteners (e.g., cane sugar, jaggery, honey), are valued by consumers. Honey is a natural sweetener, which, apart from there sweetening properties, exhibits antimicrobial, antioxidant and also acts as a preservative.
