It is a plant of the Polygonaceae family and the genus Atraphaxis. Purgative manna is a slightly yellowish white, sweet substance with different types that are more or less similar in terms of properties.

The best type of purgative manna is the one which is large, white, sweet and pure, and when it is put in the mouth, it dissolves quickly and sweetens and cools the area around the mouth and tongue.
