Horchata is a very refreshing drink, prepared with water, sugar and wet or ground chufas. The secret to our horchata is the craftsmanship of this delicious drink, as well as the quality of all the ingredients, since the good quality of all the ingredients enhances much more its flavor.
The chufa, the main ingredient of the Horchatería Sirvent horchata in Barcelona, is a tuber, which once extracted from the earth, begins the process of making horchata. First it comes to washing it, and then the chufa is passed through a mill for it to crush. Once crushed, some maceration time is left, the whole chufa is pressed several times, and the final product is obtained. At the end of this production sugar is added, although today we can find variants of horchata without any shred of sugar.
Horchata’s drink is very rich in minerals and vitamins, most not including potassium, phosphorus and vitamins C and E.
On the other hand, it should be noted, that the artisan horchata does not contain either lactose or gluten, although many brands add milk protein, and in that case it is not suitable for lactose intolerant.
