Why Ceylon Spice

Most of the sought-out spices grow better in a wet-and-hot-climate such as Sri Lanka. For e.g. Ceylon cinnamon is known as “true Cinnamon” indicating the hereditary characteristics of the plant. Pepper from Sri Lanka consists of a specific bio-chemical which is unique to it, that gives the tangy-spicy flavour. Cloves have high levels of oil content and the “Queen of Spice”, cardamom is a must-have for many food items including dessert, also used in manufacture of medicine.

What is exceptional about spices is that, if the particular ingredient is not used in the right amounts, you won’t get the expected outcome. Many chefs insist on authentic Ceylon spices due to this very reason. That, and only that, will usher-in the unique taste, desired aroma, and make the dishes so mouthwatering for patrons. The sun-kissed gardens, lush soil, ample rain and careful tending ensures Ceylon spices are the best of the best and spice exporters in Sri Lanka work tirelessly with the farmers to bring you that high quality goods.
