Item Code: MACE01
Bright coloured Mace spice is an exotic variety with health properties that aid in digestion, blood circulation and controlling anxiety. Furthermore, it adds a unique flavour to pickles, sauces, stews and curries. Mace is obtained from the Nutmeg tree, Myristica Fragrans. The coating on the nutmeg seed, usually red in colour, is removed and dried, to form Mace. During the Dutch occupation of the East Indies, several lives were lost in the fight for control over the production of Nutmeg. In the 6th century, Arab merchants controlled the trade of this spice, introducing it to many regions including Constantinople. Mace is a good source of proteins, starch, anti-oxidants and Vitamin C and its sweet flavour is owing to many essential oils like Myristicin and Eugenol.
