About Product

  • This seed pod which is native to the evergreen rain forest has been known for centuries for its culinary and medicinal properties.
  • When combined with cinnamon and cloves you have a powerful chai drink.
  • This spicy pod with a kick contains a wonderful array of essential volatile oils which are the true medicinal properties used to support overall wellbeing...More Info

The cardamom plant grows up to 4 meters in length in thick clumps and starts bearing its prized seed pods soon after about two years of plantation. Each pod measures about 1-2 cm in length. It is comprised of a three-sided pod with a thin, yet tough papery outer cover. Inside, tiny, deep-brown to black, aromatic seeds are arranged in vertical rows with each grain ensheathed again inside a very thin membrane.

While most traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, many of the possible supportive properties have been noted to be in the powerful volatile oils.

Some of those constituents include pinene, sabinene, myrcene, phellandrene, limonene, 1, 8-cineole, terpinene, p-cymene, terpinolene, linalool, linalyl acetate, terpinen-4-oil, a-terpineol, a-terpineol acetate, citronellol, nerol, geraniol, methyl eugenol, and trans-nerolidol.

Cardamom is a natural source of some of the most important minerals like potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

In fact, 100 grams of the pods contain 1119 mg of potassium, 383 mg calcium, and 229 mg of magnesium. Some other impressive numbers that this tiny power pod is showing are iron 13.97 mg, phosphorus 178 mg, and zinc 7.47 mg.

While black pepper is known as the “King of spices”, cardamom is the queen. Not only is this spice a great way to kick up the flavor of animal protein but, it has been traditionally used in the middle east as a coffee substitute.

When combined with cinnamon and cloves you have a powerful chai drink.

In the culinary world, this spice is often used in both sweet dishes like traditional desserts and savory dishes which may include rice, meat, and lentils.
