     That’s for women what about men then? Is it a good vomit stopper for them too? For them usually it’s a junk food or a past time tidbit while watching television or a long distance driving delicacy. They don’t really take it as a must food as pregnant women and the addicted people. Asam can work to wake the brain because of the sourish flavor of it. Asam also can works to get rid of something bitter meaning to neutralize whatever taste that has left from past food that has been consumed.

Different mixtures are created using these simple ingredients to create other mouth tingling Asam’s. Asam can be stored or kept in normal room temperature and never gets spoiled at all. Due to its high concentration of sugar, salt and vinegar helps prolong it from being expired.
