The History of Spices in India

In the early days of the spice trade, authentic spices like cinnamon, ginger, and turmeric were quite a in demand. Those who wanted to import and export spices would have to travel 15,000 km along paths called 'The Spice Routes' or 'Maritime Silk Roads'. Because the trade happened through the seaways, the journeys were quite long and propelled the Spice Trade to grow into an intercontinental phenomenon. 

The Malabar Coast, India, was a major trading port for spices. One of the most common spices found here in abundance was black pepper. India was famous for its production of turmeric, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and cumin like millions of other spices that we have never even heard about!   

An ancient surgeon named Maharishi Sushruta (about 4th century BC) utilised white mustard and other fragrant plants in bedsheets to keep away evil spirits. Additionally, he administered a sesame poultice to postoperative wounds, which may have had an antibacterial effect.

Spices and herbs were mentioned in the medical works of Charaka (first century) and Sushruta II (second century). Sushruta II also used pepper, cardamom, ginger, turmeric, and other plants and spices for therapeutic purposes.

For a variety of health benefits, ancient herbal treatments included spices including cardamom, ginger, black pepper, cumin, and mustard seed. In Ayurvedic medicine, spices like cloves and cardamom were chewed after meals to stimulate saliva production and help digestion.

Vasant Masala spices are naturally extracted from nature and processed with proper hygiene in a way that their flavours are not lost and their hue remains intact. These spices can be used for so many different purposes and not just in cooking. Since these spices are free of any adulteration, they are very good for health and have numerous health benefits, let's have a look at them. 

Health Benefits of Spices

We understand that there are a lot of brands that offer the same spices at a lower price but do you know about the harsh reality? Are you aware of how they are made and what percent of it is adulterated? and if you know the answer to it, are you ready to risk your life just to save a few bucks? Is it worth it?

In today's world where the cost of living is rising day by day, everyone is trying to save more but taking care of the family also becomes one priority. When the question regarding choosing either saving health or money arises, everyone is blindly going to choose health. Keeping the same thought in mind, we are here to clarify some points.

You must have noticed roadside vendors selling whole spices that you can get powdered in a mill as and when required.

But here's a tip:

While buying such spices observe the surroundings, because the roadside dust, pollution and harmful germs make the spices lose all their nutrients and rather make them very dangerous for consumption. These spices are open to the roadside atmosphere and hence, you should always consider the above-mentioned point before buying anything. 

One suggestion is to buy packed and processed spices because they are way safer to consume than the roadside ones. 

When the question of hygiene arises, here is how Vasant masala contributes to delivering the safest and purest spices of all times.

Vasant Masala - Delivering Pure & Hygenic Spices

 If you compare roadside open spices with the packed ones, the packed ones are 100% pure. The reason for this is that they are accumulated from good places and are processed and cleaned using modern and advanced technology. They are processed in a way that it does not lose their flavour and colour. One can be benefitted from the nutrients packed in these spices only if they are hygienically packed. The 'Agmark' on any packed product defines it scientifically proven fact that it is consumable. 

A family needs around 4-6 kgs of spices yearly which accounts for an increase of only 100-200 rs from open spices compared to packed ones. So now think. Will you put the value of life first or will you put money first?
