For centuries, people have used herbs and spices in their food to not only enhance flavour, but also the aroma and colour. They are the perfect ingredients to vastly increase the taste of dishes without adding extra fats or calories. With such a huge variety of spices, herbs, salts and blends to choose from, you’re sure to always have something new to try, and plenty to experiment with!
Herbs and Spices also have uses in medicine, therapies and remedies, some of which are traditional, some backed by science. Many have anti-oxidant or anti-inflammatory properties, and some suggest they may even help prevent some cancers. Here at the Spice Cupboard, we’re all about the flavour and how we can enhance food, but the research into the medical uses of herbs and spices is fascinating, if a bit of a rabbit hole! There is so much information and counter information about that it can be difficult to decipher what is correct. This is why the only thing we’ll say for sure is that our herbs and spices taste great!!
