Benefits of Non-Irradiated Spices
All spices on the market, unless stated as otherwise, will have undergone a process of ionised radiation in order to increase shelf like and kill bacteria. This is hailed as a positive move to gain a high quality product safe for the public to consume.
But what does this ‘radiation’ really do to our bodies?
Well, not only can Irradiated foods alter texture and flavour (similar to pasteurising) there are significant health issues that can occur over a prolonged period of time.
‘Food irradiation destroys much of the vitamin content and produces a number of toxic byproducts’ (Green Med Info ‘Gamma Radiation’)
Animal studies have shown toxic by products may promote tumour growths and have the ability to cross the intestinal barrier
(Pub Med 2002;44(2) 189-91)
Certified organic herbs and spices cannot by law be irradiated.
So you can rest assured that the spices you buy from Organic All Round are always non irradiated and full of flavour- so much so that a little goes a long way.
Once you try these organic spices you will be hooked.
