Mulberry leaves are the leaves of the mulberry tree, which is native to temperate regions of Asia, Europe, and North America. The leaves are known for their high concentration of compounds called flavonoids, which are believed to have potential health benefits. They have a mild, slightly sweet flavor and are often used in traditional medicine and cooking.
In traditional medicine, mulberry leaves are used as a natural remedy for digestive issues and as a laxative. In cooking, mulberry leaves are often used to flavor teas and other beverages, and are sometimes used as a natural food coloring.
To use mulberry leaves, they can be dried and steeped in hot water to make a tea. The leaves can also be added to dishes as a flavoring or used as a natural food coloring.
