Ancient and authentic - Greek herb & spice history
The Ancient Greeks were the first civilisation to introduce exotic Eastern spices like ginger, cinnamon, cassia and pepper to the Mediterranean and using ingredients like coriander as a condiment and mint to infuse an innovative taste note in meat sauces.
But they were also used to guard against various ailments, with luminaries like Hippocrates, Theophrastus and Dioscorides developing hundreds of herbal remedies from ingredients including saffron, thyme and cinnamon, many of which were subsequently adopted worldwide and are still widely used today.
So when you order authentic Greek herbs and spices from Greek Bio Store, you’re tapping into a rich health and wellness legacy passed down from the ancients.
