How is Amla Dried, and Why?

Amla powder is dried and stored for several years before being consumed daily for maximum health benefits. Drying fresh amla fruits yields dried gooseberry. Clean the Indian gooseberry and dry it in the sun with a thick cotton cloth. The drying process removes all of the water, allowing the nutrients in Amla to be fully concentrated. It could take 6-8 days to dry and crisp. All of the nutrient concentrations are present in the dried part.
