Health Benefits

Herbs and spices are not only used to enhance dishes but many of them are wonderful antioxidants and have a range of health benefits specific to each. We also offer a selection of low-salt and salt-free seasonings for individuals careful of sodium intake. Our spices have no flavor enhancers and we do not use fillers in any of our products.


Gourmet Peppers

Our pungent black, hot and peppery green, and mild white peppercorns all come from the same plant, the Piper nigrum. The differences in color and flavor of these peppers depends on the maturity and processing techniques. Green pepper is harvested at the earliest stage of ripeness and dried quickly while black pepper is harvested midway during ripeness and is then dried slowly. White pepper is harvested when it is red and ripe; the washed outer shell is removed and the white core without the pulp is then dried. The intense and warm Tellicherry also comes from the green fruit but is harvested shortly before the onset of the ripening process.


The sharp and citrusy Sichuan Pepper, also known as Chinese coriander, comes from the pepper plant Zanthoxylum simulans of China. Our sweet and fruity pink peppercorns come from the plant Schinus molle of Central and South America.


It is highly recommended to purchase whole peppercorns since pre-ground pepper tastes will generally dull and fade by the time it is used.


Exotic Salts

Often referred to as “white gold”, our premium salts are pure, natural and do not contain additives. Our collection comes from carefully selected producers from the areas in which the salt naturally occurs. The Fleur de sel or “Flower of Salt” from Eastern Algarve comes from hand-harvested, delicate crystals which form organically on the surface of the water. Our Inca Salt from Peru and Himalayan Salt from the Punjab region of Pakistan both produce a pink color due to the naturally occurring iron oxide and also contain nutritional trace minerals, electrolytes, and elements. Our unique Danish Smoked Salt is cold smoked salt from the Dead Sea and contains 84 different elements.


Chilies

Chilies derive from the nightshade pepper originating from Mexico over 6000 years ago. Chili peppers contain a substance called capsaicin which produces their characteristic pungency and a range of mild to intense spice. The more capsaicin a pepper contains, the hotter it will be. Habanero has the most amount of heat followed by jalepenos, then pimentos and finally cherry peppers. Capsaicin itself is also used as topical analgesic to relieve minor aches and pains of the muscles/joints due to its anti-inflammatory properties.


Curries

Curry is an intricate combination of herbs and spices that tends to vary by culture so there isn’t a standard recipe. Traditionally, the ingredients in curries were added at different times during the cooking process, but the modern notion of a prepared mixture of the spices is thought to have been developed by Indian merchants to sell to the British army. Unlike most curry blends, VOM FASS curry does not contain salt. Our robust English curry is ideal for spicy lovers, our rich Madras Curry has mild heat while our Pineapple Curry is fruity and sweet.


Herbs

Herbs can come from perennials such as shrubs and trees, annuals, as well as botanical, non-woody plants. They have long been used for culinary, medicinal, and even spiritual purposes. VOM FASS herbs are not mass produced but rather use controlled cultivation, soil testing, and environmental friendly production processes to bring you the highest quality of herbs. All of our herbs are wonderful complements to our oils and vinegars.
