Traditionally an Indian spice, which is native to the Kerala evergreen rain forests, cardamom is a small pod which houses black seeds. Both the seeds and the pod give a pleasant aroma and possess a distinct, wonderfully fragrant taste that is both peppery and citrusy.
Cardamom has long been one of the hero ingredients in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine as a treatment for mouth ulcers, digestive problems and even depression.
Its primary health benefit is aiding digestion - combating heartburn, calming nausea, easing bloating, reducing excessive gas and easing constipation. Cardamom is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, sulphur, and magnesium along with iron and manganese. Further, it is rich in many vital vitamins, including riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin C.
Cardamom is wonderfully fragrant and blends beautifully with nutmeg and sweet cinnamon in our deliciously warming GOLDEN.
