With more and more people focusing on their health these days, it’s no surprise that consumers are looking to spice up their culinary selections. But long before they became a part of our creative recipes, herbs and spices have had a long history of being celebrated for their medicinal properties, well before culinary use! Modern science has now shown that many of them carry remarkable health benefits offering great opportunities for new product development and innovation.
