Ginger has been used in the Far East for more than 3,000 years as a condiment and medicinal plant. It has a fruity-tart taste and contains essential oils and important minerals as well as various vitamins.
It is widely known that oranges contain lots of useful substances. But not many people realise that the peel of the orange is even more valuable than the flesh of the fruit: more than 170 active phytochemicals, over 60 different flavonoids and numerous essential oils make it a valuable source of nutrients. And its refreshing, sweet aroma makes it a very delicious one as well.
The ‘queen of spices’ is one of the most popular aromas in the world. It belongs to the Orchidaceae family and is native to Mexico and Central America. Its delicate flavour and extensive production process make real vanilla a particularly valuable spice and medicinal plant.
Liquorice has been used since ancient times for its medicinal properties and is one of the 50 basic herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is around 50 times sweeter than sugar and tastes mild, sweet, bitter and aromatic. Liquorice was selected as the Medicinal Plant of the Year in 2012 due to its valuable nutrients.
In Southeast Asia, this aromatic herb and medicinal plant is also known by the name ‘fever grass’. It contains essential oils and has a powerful, fresh citrus flavour. It is still unknown where this plant that belongs to the sweetgrass family, and is mainly used in Asian cuisine, originates from.
Black pepper, known as the ‘King of Spices’ nowadays is one of the most important spices in the world, together with salt. It originates from the Malabar coast of India and it has an intensive spicy flavour, ranging from mildly spicy to spicy. Ancient traditional medicine of Ayurveda recommends black pepper not only for its spiciness, but also for its valuable properties as a medicinal plant.
First discovered in 1696 and presumably a coincidental result of water mint and wild mint, peppermint is one of the most important medicinal plants in the world. Peppermint has a slightly sharp taste and is adored around the world for its refreshing aroma and nutritious properties. In 2004 it was selected as Medicinal Plant of the Year.
