Product Description

Allspice, also known as Jamaican pepper, is a spice renowned for its ability to add incredible flavor to many foods. It is widely used in Mexican and Central American cuisines. It originates from the Caribbean region and has been popular with the local tribes for many centuries.

The spice tastes well either whole or ground, but the former is better to use in marinades and meat dishes.

Health Benefits

Its ability to make many foods more delicious is not the only great thing about whole allspice. This particular spice also offers some important health benefits that give you more reason to use it more often.

These benefits are:

  • Treating indigestion.
    Some of the elements allspice contains increase motility of the gastrointestinal tract. They also facilitate the production of certain enzymes. This results in improved digestion and allows the spice to relieve stomachache in some cases.
  • Treating inflammation.
    Allspice possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to treat stomach flu and other similar conditions. Its effect on other inflammatory processes isn’t particularly strong.
  • Mild anesthetic effect.
    The berries of this spice contain an essential oil called eugenol. It can be used as a local anesthetic and antiseptic. This is one of the reasons that explain why allspice can help relieve stomachache. Oils derived from this plant can be used for treating serious infections caused by E. coli, L. monocytogenes, and Salmonella.
  • High nutritional value.
    Although you won’t eat enough spice to make a significant effect on your daily intake of essential nutrients, it is good to know that even a small amount of it you use when cooking contains these important elements. It is especially rich in minerals, including copper, potassium, iron, and manganese.

    I love the feel of this dry brush, it’s exactly what I was looking for. The only thing I didn’t like is how easily the brush head detaches from the handle, which makes it harder to brush the hard to reach places on my back. I did just get it yesterday and haven’t really played with it, so maybe I’m missing something. All and all, nice product!

    Arrived promptly. Glad to procure an item that would not be easy to find in my area. Planning to make brandied cherries, but I am sure this would be a welcome addition to spiced cider or mulled wine.

    I am looking forward to grinding my own spices and will use this as a substitute for cinnamon which I am allergic.

    I use the whole allspice making pickled beets and they taste just like the beets I made using allspice from the store.

    I grind these in my coffee grinder. The taste and aroma is wonderful. Freshly ground is much better than the pre-ground that you buy in the grocery store. I add a bit of the allspice along with some ginger and cinnamon to my coffee each morning. Yum.

    We had a large event during which I cooked up 10 gallons (!) of mulled cider. These sticks made it easy . . . I used almost all of them!

    I only needed few allspice berries for a corned beef so I was very pleased to find Food To Live. The spice was exactly as described, reasonably priced and arrived on time.
