In today's fast-paced, globalized world, it’s as if the importance of quality has gone out the window. The cheapest, fastest way to produce anything is seemingly “the best” way to do it. But at Colorado Spice, we beg to differ. We’d rather spend more money and time as a company trying to make the best product to offer our customers than resort to the quick and dirty ways of business because we care about the herbs and spice blends that we create.
Your Dollar Travels Further
Our spice blends cost a tad more than conventional spice brands, but your dollar travels further when you use our product. You see, because our herbs and spices are such high-quality, you can use less of our products than you would with other spices. Because our herbs and spices are non-GMO, natural, Organic, the flavor is more pronounced and stronger than poor-quality spices. This means that at the end of the day, when you use our quality seasonings, you not only get better tasting, higher quality flavor for your food but you’ll get more for your money! Who doesn’t love that?
Many unscrupulous manufacturers use a number of ways to counterfeit the quality of spice, in order to reduce the price. The smaller the fraction of spice, the easier it is to falsify. For instance, when a spice is finely ground, this conceals its true composition, making it is almost impossible to determine the quality of raw materials. To distinguish quality spices from cheap spices, you can look at the color, taste and smell of the spice. For instance, a well made paprika is bright in color whereas low quality paprika has a dull dark color. You can also taste the difference, as a spice like paprika should taste sweetish-spicy, not a burning kind of spicy that conventional brands create.
Cheap For A Reason
You don’t want to eat moldy fruit, or rancid milk right? Well, this is why you don’t want to be eating poor quality spices. Cheap spices are cheap for a reason. The health regulations created by the American Spice Trade Association are very relaxed for ground spices. From mold, excreta (poo), insects, rat hairs, wire, string and other “foreign matter” is acceptable in a certain amount in pre-ground spices. Yikes! Additionally, most conventional spices at the grocery store have been there for over a year or more, and most likely were sitting in a warehouse for a year or more before even arriving at the grocery store. So by the time you use these spices, they may already be stale. And don’t even get us started on the nasty fillers, additives allowed in these products as well!
At the end of the day herbs and spices are meant to enhance your food not diminish it. So, don’t be fooled by the fun packaging and spice flavors at the store if you want to avoid sprinkling mold, poo, and other nasties onto your food.
