Mad about Petai (Parkia speciosa)

The next time you purchase a bunch of Petai from the Orang Asli, think twice before you ask for a discount.  In most cases the pods are gathered from the wild and sometimes they have to risk their lives to climb up the tree to do so.  The petai tree can grow to about 90 feet (30 metres).

Petai contains three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose.   Be sure to have your petai before your next workout in the gym.  Not only will you get a good boost of energy, the smell might just drive the unwanted crowd at the gym elsewhere.
