Horchata or Rice and Almond Beverage My recipe for Horchata is as follows. Soak three tablespoons of rice in water for 4 hours. Rinse the rice well and drain then place in a blender with 3 tablespoons of raw unhulled sesame seed 3 inches of true cinnamon stick and 3 tablespoons of almonds either whole or soaked and peeled. The use of almonds cinnamon and sesame together in this beverage is so typical of Guatemalan flavors. This mixture is blended until all ingredients are very fine. Strain the liquid into a pitcher and add in 2 more cups of water or milk if preferred. Sweeten to taste starting with a couple of tablespoons of sugar and add as needed. In essence Horchata is a sweetened nut and seed milk similar to the touted health drinks being sold here in the US over 40 years later.
You can also call these toxins free-radicals. Many if not most bottled waters being sold on the market today are acidic.There are a few main reasons because of this. One reason is that just by storing any kind of water in a closed bottled it will become more and more acidic overtime. Another reason is that large majority of bottled waters go through a purification process that is either called reverse osmosis or distillation. Through this process water can lose many natural occurring alkaline minerals and thereby losing the alkaline pH. Without these minerals the water then will have an acidic effect on the body. However please let me note that not all bottled water has an acidic pH some either have a neutral pH or slight alkalinity. Bottled waters that are not acidic however most of the time still do not have any anti-oxidants and is still oxidizing on the body that causes cellular damage.
With interest in these kinds of products higher than ever the future looks bright for this category. The 1990s fueled a health and lifestyle revolution that resulted in consumer demand for foods and beverages that provide both nourishment and good taste at the right price. The beverage industry with functional drinks has successfully met those desires by selling a broad range of products--juices energy drinks smoothies soy-based beverages enhanced isotonics enhanced water teas that fulfills a nutritional need. Claims for many of these drinks have not been proven and the amount of added ingredients is neither standardized nor identified on the label. And their safety -- optimal doses interactions and long-term consequences -- isn t known.
