High Quality Spice Flavor & Aroma

Heat, light and moisture are three components that deteriorate the flavors and aromas of spices. These factors affect directly the volatile oils of the plant material. The more the volatile oils are preserved in processing, the more potent the flavor and aroma in the end spice. Many spice brands employ an ambient milling process.  Ambient milling creates heat that inherently burns off the volatile oils more rapidly, negatively affecting the flavor and aroma and can shorten the shelf-life of the spice. 

Trade East spices are manufactured using a unique cryogenic milling method that is designed to preserve the flavor and aroma of the spices. Because of a quick-chill method while processing, cryogenic milling reduces the loss of volatile oils (flavor components). Liquid nitrogen is used to cool the product and the mill head to temperatures as low as -250° F while grinding the spices. 

This cryogenic method of processing helps ensure full flavored spices with a long shelf life, and a light-shielding container and a tri-laminate inner seal helps preserve flavor. All Trade East products are packed in consumer-friendly packaging and supported by a merchandise program.
