Salep

 

the dried premature root tubers of plants of the family Orchidaceae (many species of Orchis, Platanthera, and other genera). The tubers contain mucilage (up to 50 percent), starch (24–30 percent), and protein (15 percent). Gathered soon after the plant has completed flowering, they are immersed for a few minutes in boiling water and then dried. Salep is used in medicine, mainly as a coating.
