Cloves Powder


our commitment to eco-friendly packaging

SKU: N/A Category:

Organic and fair trade clove powder.

Cloves (Eugenia caryophyllus) are known for their aromatic warm, sweet taste giving gingerbread and pumpkin pie that special flavour.  Cloves are good for digestion and have anti-inflammatory properties. Our cloves are fair trade, certified organic and grown in Sri Lanka.

The Plant
The unopened flower buds of a large evergreen tree, cloves are about the size and shape of small nails. When the buds turn a bright red they are collected and dried.

Health Benefits
An excellent source of manganese, omega-3 fatty acid, vitamin K, dietary fiber, and vitamin C, there’s no denying cloves are good for you.  Clove’s active component, eugenol, is an anti-inflammatory substance often used in dentistry.  Eugenol, in combination with other components, forms a mild anesthetic as well as an antibacterial agent. With these properties it’s no surprise that you’ll find clove oil in some over-the-counter sore throat sprays and mouth washes. Beyond its nutritional value and use in dentistry, cloves improve digestion by increasing gastro-intestinal enzyme secretions that relieve indigestion and problems with constipation.
Cloves are also potent antioxidants with an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 290,283 per 100 grams as based on the TEAC (Trolox Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity) unit of measure. Compare this to the ORAC value of popular antioxidant fighters like blueberries, which sits at just 4,669, and Goji berries at 3,290. A single teaspoon (2 grams) of cloves will provide a TEAC value of 5,805, more than the TEAC value of 100 grams of berries!

Consuming a very small amount of cloves can give you the same level of antioxidant benefit as a handful of berries and at only a fraction of the cost!

In the Kitchen
In the cooler seasons add a warming note to apple cider by adding ground cloves and cinnamon. Try spicing up your soups and broths by adding an onion pierced with whole cloves.

To keep the fragrance and flavor intact, grind your clove just before preparing dishes. A coffee grinder works great, just remember to wipe it clean to avoid rust forming on the blades. Add the clove at the very end of cooking to prevent the evaporation of its healthy essential oils.

Environmentally Friendly Packaging

Yes, No

Our commitment to the environment.

Our packaging uses minimal plastic.  Plastic is triple laminated to preserve freshness. Outer packaging uses craft paper which is 100% recyclable.  These are for displaying in retail stores. To go further in our quest to be more sustainable, these items will be shipped without the outer package, unless otherwise requested.  This reduces packaging waste and the carbon footprint.  Shipping bigger items creates a larger carbon foot print because of more transportation weight (more gas consumption). Our products default to being shipped out in environmentally friendly packaging. If you prefer they ship in displayed packaging please choose the appropriate option on each product as you add them to your cart.
