Rose flowers are used as food

Rose flowers are used as food, also usually as flavoring or to add their scent to food.
Rose water is the hydrosol portion of the distillate of rose petals. Rose water, itself a by-product of the production of rose oil for use in perfume, is used to flavor food, as a component in some 
cosmetic and medical preparations, and for religious purposes throughout Europe and Asia. Rose syrup is made from rose water, with sugar added.
Since ancient times, the rose has been highly prized for its source of perfume, medicinal use and nutritional properties. In fact so much so that ancient Greeks, Romans placed as much importance on large public rose gardens as they did on wheat fields and fruit orchards.
Gulkand is a sweet preserve of rose petals. Gul means flower (Rose) and Kand means sweet (sugar). Gulkand

is an Ayurvedic tonic and it is the most delicious Ayurvedic preparation known to mankind.
