Global Seasonings and Spices Market: Overview
Seasonings and spices are food additives that are primarily used to improve the flavor and taste of food. These additives are being used worldwide since time immemorial. Spices have not only been influencing the foreign palates, but have resulted in treating diseases and illnesses as well. Spices come from the bark, seeds, roots, buds, leaves, stems, or fruits of aromatic plants and trees.
There are certain spices grown in Asian countries, especially in India, which are known to treat fungal infections, common cold, other infections, and fever much faster than regular antibiotics available in the market. Whether the economic condition is good or bad, the global market for seasonings and spices has always remained robust.
