Hear the word ‘spices’ and we are like ‘yummmmmm……’. After all, it’s the spices that add flavor and aroma to your food. It’s all the magic of freshly grounded, aromatic spices that make your food the yummiest one to satisfy your taste glands.
You might say “freshly grounded, why go with them when we already have the pre-grounded spices?”. Yup, it’s true that pre-grounded spices shall save a lot of your work and time of grinding whilst cooking, but, they won’t add an exotic and supremely catchy flavor to your food as the freshly grounded ones can do.
It’s the oil in the spices that makes them the most tasty and aromatic. In grounded spices that are stored in the jars of your kitchen shelves are exposed to oxygen, making their essential oils evaporate faster. Hence, grounded spices dry out faster and become less vibrant within a short period of time that they are ground and stored. Hence, when you use them to spice up your food you may not get the same taste and aroma as you got it the very first time you used them when freshly ground.
What’s the use of adding a spice to your food that doesn’t engulf the real taste inhibiting oils in them? So, better get your spices whole rather than grounded. Nor, ground your spices early to reduce your work at the time of cooking. In both the cases, you are compromising with the exotic essence of spices that’s gonna add real oomph of taste to your food.
Often the grounded spices that you buy from a store can expire of their oils within six to maximum of twelve months. On the other hand, when you buy whole spices, you are sure to be able to use them in the best state for atleast two years. Moreover, the grounded spices are usually of low quality including other contaminants within them added in them for profitable sale. Possibility of impurities in grounded spices is rather higher than the whole spices, because health regulations regarding the ground spices are not so strict. According to experts, nearly 20% foreign matter can be encountered in the grounded spices brought from a regular store. So, why not get your Spices whole rather than grounded?
