October 20, 2008, Fargo, ND -- As the natural food industry continues to grow, more and more people are looking at everything they consume. At first, using organic spices wasn't something most people thought twice about; spices are a very small part of a large meal. Today, consumers are educating themselves on everything organic and finding out how using organic products--even spices-- is not only beneficial to their health but also beneficial to the environment.
Why Buy Organic? Conventional spices sold in the United States are often exposed to irradiation or ethylene oxide, a known carcinogen, and fumigated with hazardous chemicals. As a consequence, spices may be contaminated with pesticide residues and with genetically modified ingredients. Organic spices are treated with steam and ozone to combat natural predators like bacteria, parasites, insects, yeast and molds that are acquired while in the ground. Organic spices do not contain fillers, synthetic anti-caking agents, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, which may be found in non-organic spices.
Why Buy Swanson Organic 100% Certified Organic Spices? Swanson Health Products has teamed up with Red Monkey to announce the addition of ten 100% certified organic spices to their family of products. Red Monkey, a growing Midwestern-based company, shares the same values as Swanson Health Products and offers the best quality products. They have extensive quality control programs to ensure that only the finest organic products are used.

100% Certified Organic Ground Cayenne Pepper Add to fresh fruits with a splash of lime for a more savory treat.
100% Certified Organic Ground Cinnamon With a warm, exotic flavor, cinnamon adds richness to sweet desserts and savory dishes alike. Add a pinch to meat marinades, stews, curries and casseroles or sprinkle a little on black beans when making burritos or nachos.
100% Certified Organic Ground Cumin Use in poultry, marinades, and as a subtle spice in salads
100% Certified Organic Dill Weed When adding dill to dishes that are in the cooking process, add near the end of cooking to help preserve the dill flavor.
100% Certified Organic Garlic Powder Garlic Powder can be used in marinades, or mixed with herbs and rubbed into poultry, pork, or beef before cooking.
100% Certified Organic Ground Ginger Ginger is used to flavor sweets including cakes, cookies, breads and beverages. It is also good in sauces and fruit dishes, and is often used in Asian cooking.
100% Certified Organic Crushed Rosemary Rosemary is great with beef, pork and chicken. It is also used as a deodorizer and disinfectant.
100% Certified Organic Thyme Leaves Thyme is slow to release its flavors so it should be added early in the cooking process and is great with meats, soups and stews. Often used as a primary flavor with lamb, tomatoes and eggs.
100% Certified Organic Ground Turmeric Turmeric is widely used in South Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. It is sometimes used as a coloring agent giving curry powder its brilliant yellow color.
