KURUNDU  CLOVES WHOLE 30g

Organic and fair trade.

Cloves (Eugenia caryophyllus) are known for their aromatic warm, sweet taste giving gingerbread and pumpkin pie that special flavour.  Cloves are good for digestion and have anti-inflammatory properties. Our cloves are fair trade, certified organic and grown in Sri Lanka.

The Plant. The unopened flower buds of a large evergreen tree, cloves are about the size and shape of small nails. When the buds turn a bright red they are collected and dried.

Health Benefits. An excellent source of manganese, omega-3 fatty acid, vitamin K, dietary fiber, and vitamin C, there’s no denying cloves are good for you.  Clove’s active component, eugenol, is an anti-inflammatory substance often used in dentistry.  Eugenol, in combination with other components, forms a mild anesthetic as well as an antibacterial agent. With these properties it’s no surprise that you’ll find clove oil in some over-the-counter sore throat sprays and mouth washes. Beyond its nutritional value and use in dentistry, cloves improve digestion by increasing gastro-intestinal enzyme secretions that relieve indigestion and problems with constipation.

Cloves are also potent antioxidants with an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 290,283 per 100 grams as based on the TEAC (Trolox Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity) unit of measure. Compare this to the ORAC value of popular antioxidant fighters like blueberries, which sits at just 4,669, and Goji berries at 3,290. A single teaspoon (2 grams) of cloves will provide a TEAC value of 5,805, more than the TEAC value of 100 grams of berries!

Consuming a very small amount of cloves can give you the same level of antioxidant benefit as a handful of berries and at only a fraction of the cost!

In the Kitchen. In the cooler seasons add a warming note to apple cider by adding ground cloves and cinnamon. Try spicing up your soups and broths by adding an onion pierced with whole cloves.

To keep the fragrance and flavor intact, grind your clove just before preparing dishes. A coffee grinder works great, just remember to wipe it clean to avoid rust forming on the blades. Add the clove at the very end of cooking to prevent the evaporation of its healthy essential oils.
