Some of our more popular items:
Depending on your preference or how heavy-handed you are, chilli peppers can add a dash of hotness and flavour to any dish. The chilli is considered a fruit pod, native to the Central American region and contains an impressive list of vitamins and antioxidants. The little green and red dynamos offer more than just flavour though, and are known as a painkiller and antibiotic. They also help produce the stress and pain reducing hormones known as endorphins. The strength of chillies varies, ranging from mild to sweat-inducing hotness – something we would not recommend on first dates.
Cinnamon works wonders in cooked meals as well as baking products. It is known to lower blood sugar levels, help with weight loss, alertness, IBS, muscle spasms and many other ailments. Coming in either powder form or as cinnamon sticks, it adds a unique flavour to most dishes or even your tea or hot chocolate drink. We stock cassia as well as ceylon cinnamon, the ‘true’ cinnamon variety native to Sri Lanka.
Cloves are often taken for granted and rarely added to meals. However, they offer a host of health benefits. From temporary relief for toothache to preventing flues and colds, reducing inflammation and even treating cuts and bruises, you should always keep a clove or two handy at home.
Coriander can help control blood sugar, cholesterol and free radical production. The full-bodied flavouring it offers adds an impressive taste to soups, fish and other meat meals. Rich in dietary fibre, it is also a good source of iron, copper, calcium and potassium. It’s best used as seeds or in ground powder form.
Who doesn’t love a good curry? This globally loved and well-known Indian spice is the key to a great meal, whether its the meat, chicken, fish, or vegetable variety. Health benefits include cancer prevention, increasing the liver’s ability to remove toxins, pain reduction and an increase in bone health. Curry comes in a variety of powders, pastes and flavours, all offering an array of health benefits.
Salt gets a bad rap but that’s primarily because of excessive use which can be detrimental to your health. Having said that – apart from added flavour – there are many health benefits to adding sea salt to your diet. Salt helps build a strong immune system, can help with weight loss and can assist diabetics to maintain proper sugar levels in their bodies. We recommend that you check with your doctor for the right amount of salt that is good for you.
Pepper is a feature on any dinner table, offering both flavour and multiple health benefits. Black pepper assists in the breakdown of fat cells, helps to fight against infections and insect bites, and is a good treatment for asthma and whooping cough. Cayenne pepper is a hot little spice that adds a flavoursome kick to any meal, contains both anti-fungal and anti-allergen properties, and is known to help with migraine prevention.
We are no stranger to the pungent smell and strong flavour of garlic, but did you know that it also provides numerous health benefits? Extremely nutritious and low in calories, garlic contains high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Manganese. It is known as one of the healthier foods around, combating colds and flu, reducing blood pressure, improving cholesterol levels and possibly even preventing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Great in every meal, especially on pizzas, the garlic breath that accompanies this clove is a small price to pay for the medley of flavours it provides.
Himalayan rock salt has been an ongoing craze for a while now, and for good reason. Superior to traditional versions, and free of the toxins and pollutants that taint most ocean salt, it not only adds flavour but offers a host of health benefits. Among them, reducing common signs of ageing, promoting stable pH balance in the cells, improved blood sugar health, increased bone strength and reducing cramps. In short, Himalayan salt is worth all the hype and attention it receives.
More than a common kitchen herb, and a welcome addition to any serving of soup or curry, Cumin offers a distinct flavour that is enjoyed the world over. Cumin’s health benefits include the ability to aid digestion, improve immunity and treat piles, insomnia, respiratory disorders, asthma, bronchitis, common cold, lactation, anaemia, skin disorders, boils and cancer. Possessing high antioxidant content, it is a good source of iron, manganese, and other vitamins and minerals.
Red bell pepper
There is a virtual unlimited number of red pepper recipes; from stir fries to pizzas and salads, red bell peppers are the cherry on top that makes all flavours come together. Crisp, sweet, and with a bit of crunch, they are rich in vitamin C, B6, and vitamin A, as well as folate. This makes them a powerful antioxidant capable of improving your night vision, helping prevent anaemia and even improving your metabolism.
Szechuan pepper is a critical part of the Szechuan beef recipe, a popular Chinese dish in the US. It also goes well in traditional Szechuan meals that make use of duck, chicken or pork. Native to Szechwan, they are not actually part of the pepper family despite their name. Offering a wonderfully spicy flavour, each little Szechuan peppercorn provides health benefits. The natural citrus aromatic flavours give you that refreshed and rejuvenated feeling that you need on those long days. It also supports your digestive system by boosting your gastrointestinal and stimulating your appetite, and its rich in a wide range of vitamins and minerals
