Herbs & Spices
Spices and herbs have been used for both culinary and medicinal purposes for centuries, and they are vital ingredients in Spanish cuisine.
Spain has quite a large production of Smoked Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper, Garlic, Clove, Bay Leaf, Thyme, Rosemary, Oregano, Parsley, Fennel, and Spearmint. Spain is also the world’s largest producer of top-class Saffron from PDO Azafrán de La Mancha that is considered the best in the world due to its bright red colour, intense, toasty aromas of flowers and dry hay, and high colouring power.
Our product catalogue includes a variety of magnificent culinary herbs, spices and seasonings to give a unique colour, aroma and flavour to the dishes.
We have chosen a variety of aromatic herbs that have been carefully picked and slowly dried to preserve the purest flavour possible. Herbs could be added to stews, sauces, marinades, and soups, or could be sprinkled over finished dishes for more intense flavour.
Salt is the most important seasoning in cooking. We have carefully chosen the finest unrefined sea salts, including the “fleur de sel” or flower of salt, which is a hand-harvested sea salt considered to be the highest quality salt in the world due to its delicate flavour, moist texture, and high mineral content.
We have a wide selection of mild spices that add sweet and salty flavours to meals, as well as fiery spices that bring out interesting new flavours in food. Spices are used in different sauces, marinades, soups, meat, fish or vegetarian dishes.
Salts, spices and aromatic herbs have been used since ancient times as natural remedies and as condiments in order to enhance the flavour of dishes and preserve food longer. These products offer a variety of nutritional benefits for the human body.
