Spice Zen Story
Spice Zen Story
During my childhood years in India, I saw spices being stone-ground and roasted. I was always awed by the aroma and flavours of freshly-made spices. I wanted to share these flavours with the rest of the world. Hence Spice Zen was born.
Wars were fought over spices for centuries, but Spice Zen has been borne out of love for food and the many health benefits of freshly ground, homemade spices. I make specialised cold pressed raw juices on special order from customers. These are then then placed in sealed packaging to maintain freshness.
I will continue to share new “fresh” products that are different from those in the market. I hope you enjoy them. Do write or call to share your feedback.
Spice Zen would not have been possible without the support of my family and help from close friends.
Spice Zen Difference
At Spice Zen, we believe in the goodness of authentic, traditional, artisanal, fresh products. Which is why we only use Organic, Biodynamic or wild crafted ingredients to bring the best quality to our customers.
The bespoke, “fresh” ground spices are produced in a stone-grinding mill when we receive your order. We grind the handcrafted spices ourselves - it is the best way to ensure purity. Our stoneground spices bring traditional artisanal flavours in every speck.
We preserve the essential oils released on grinding by packing our products immediately with an airtight seal in glass jars. We use amber glass jars, to prevent light from affecting the spices.
Our "fresh" dry roasted spices, using a traditional technique, offer a delectable range of flavours and aromas.
Lastly, our cold pressed, raw juices are packed with goodness in a form that is easily absorbed by the body. They create smooth flavours and are ideal for lattes, teas, juices, salad mixes or stir fry, and even marinades for vegetable and meats.
