What goes in.

Organic basil.

What's kept out.

Artificial colours, fillers and additives.

Did you know?

Did you know many commercial brands sneak unwelcome ingredients into their spices? Plant husks, cheaper seeds and other fillers are sometimes used to bulk up a spice, while industrial dyes and chromate may be added to amplify the colour.

Geography.

Sourced in Egypt.

Hot tip.

Basil and tomatoes are a love affair of the ages. Pair this perfect combo with feta and red onion for a nutritious, no-mess salad.
