Ripe Asam fruit is bright-yellow orange and tastes very sour therefore it cannot be eaten fresh. Instead the fruit is sliced, dried then stewed and used as a common ingredient in Asian dishes such as curries and soups. Asam fruit, when encapsulated, can be taken two times a day prior to meals as a natural appetite suppressant.
