Organic Allspice Powder
pimenta officinalis  

Our organic allspice comes from a myrtle tree common for Jamaica. Its fruits feature the unique combination of aromas, such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and black pepper, hence the name “allspice”. Allspice fruits is very rich in essential oil (2 to 5%) and antioxidants.  The content of antioxidants in allspice is greater than in most other berries, fruits, and vegetables. The essential oil in the ground spice is sufficient to neutralize some bacteria. Allspice is widely used in cooking, green tea blends, and also has medicinal, aromatherapy and cosmetic uses thanks to its antibacterial, stimulant, antioxidant, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac, and muscle relaxant properties.
