Spices and Herbs

Description

Historically, spices were some of the most valuable items of trade in the ancient and medieval world. A handful of cardamom was worth as much as a poor man's yearly wages.

According to Wikipedia, spices are defined as ' a dried seed. fruit, root, bark or vegetative substance."  A herb is generally classified as a green, leafy part of the plant, and sometimes the flower.    The American Spice Trade Association    (ASTA) defines spices as ' any dried plant product used primarily for seasoning purposes."  Included are tropical aromatic (peppers, cinnamon, cloves etc) leafy herbs (basil, oregano, marjoram, etc), spice seeds (sesame, poppy, mustard etc), and dehydrated vegetables (onion, garlic, etc).

The recommended shelf life for crushed and ground spices are approximately one year, and varies according to oil content.

If possible, store your spices in cold storage (32°F-45°F) is highly recommended. Always keep spices stored away from heat, humidity and exposure to sunlight or florescent lights.

The final key is making sure the container they are in are closed after each use. If, you can smell a spice it means its aroma and flavours are escaping.

If, you are looking for Garlic or Onion Minced / Flakes / Chopped please see our product line up under Dehydrated Fruits and Vegetables.

Chilies

Chilies Dried

Description

Chilies are the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum, members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae. They are widely used in many cuisines to add spiciness to dishes. The substances that give chili peppers their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and related compounds known as capsaicinoids.

Chili peppers originated in Mexico. After the Columbian Exchange, many cultivars of chili pepper spread across the world, used for both food and traditional medicine.

Worldwide in 2014, 32.3 million tonnes of green chili peppers and 3.8 million tonnes of dried chili peppers were produced.

China is the world's largest producer of green chillies, providing half of the global total.
