Preface

The history of Indian spices and condiments is probably as old as human civilisation itself. There are numerous references about them in the Vedas, the Bible and the Quran. The earliest literary record in India on spices and condiments is in the Rig Veda, around 6000 BC.

Indian spices have been famous since pre-historic times. Indian ships were carrying Indian spices and other products to Mesopotamia, Arabia and Egypt, centuries before Greece and Rome had their birth. This attracted many seafarers to come to the shores of India.

The Greek merchants thronged the markets of South India to purchase the spices, besides other precious articles like diamonds and textiles, long before the Christian era. Romans, who were fond of sensuous pleasures, were spending huge amounts on Indian spices and other famed Indian products. It is said that there might have been no crusades and no expeditions to the East without the lure of Indian spices and other famed products.

In spite of the industrial advancement of India in modern times, this country is still regarded as the Home Of Spices. This is due to the fact that the quality of the spices produced in and exported from this country continues to be one of the best. The international trade in spices has grown by leaps and bounds. An estimated 500,000 tonnes of spices and herbs valued at 1500 million US dollars are now imported globally every year. An impressive 46% of this supply comes from India. India’s exports of spice extracts have shown spectacular growth, attaining over 50 per cent of the global market within a short span.

Spices and condiments are one of the most important forms of natural foods. Besides culinary uses, they have been used in indigenous systems of medicine as natural healers since ancient times. They thus form pan of our heritage healing. This book describes in great detail the medicinal virtues of different spices and condiments, and their usefulness in the treatment of various common ailments. This information can serve as a guide to the readers to solve their common health problems through the use of specific spices and condiments, besides adopting a well-balanced natural diet. It would, however, be advisable to consult a doctor or an expert naturopath in case of serious illnesses.
