Why Non-Irradiated Spices are Better

January 22, 2023

At My Fabulous Food, we understand the importance of using high-quality, natural ingredients in our products. That's why we are proud to offer a wide range of non-irradiated spice blends.

Irradiation is a process that exposes food to ionizing radiation in order to kill bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms. While irradiation can be an effective way to make food safer to eat, it also has some downsides. The process can change the flavor and nutritional content of food, and there are also concerns about the safety of consuming irradiated food.

At My Fabulous Food, we choose not to irradiate our spice blends, instead we use traditional methods to ensure the safety of our products, such as sourcing from reputable suppliers, proper storage, and cleanliness in our facility.

Our non-irradiated spice blends are made using only the highest quality, all-natural ingredients. We use a blend of herbs and spices that are carefully selected for their flavor and aroma, and we never use any artificial ingredients or preservatives. This means that our spice blends are not only safe to eat, but they also taste great and are packed with natural flavor and aroma.

Our non-irradiated spice blends can be used in a variety of ways to add flavor and depth to your cooking. They can be used to marinate meats, season vegetables, and create unique and delicious sauces and dressings. Some of our most popular blends include our Sweet and Spicy Sriracha, Creole, A Shot of Espresso, Adobo, Habanero - which are perfect for adding bold flavor to your cooking.

Here's an overview of the benefits of non-irradiated spices:

  1. Retaining natural flavor and aroma: Non-irradiated spices retain their natural flavor, aroma, and color, making them more flavorful and aromatic than irradiated spices.

  2. Nutritional value: Non-irradiated spices contain more of the natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are present in the original plant, which can provide additional health benefits.

  3. Food Safety: Irradiation is a process that exposes food to ionizing radiation to kill bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms, but it can also change the flavor, nutritional content and safety of the food. Non-irradiated spices are safer as they are not exposed to ionizing radiation, and thus retain their natural nutritional and safety properties.

  4. Natural: non-irradiated spices are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers. This is better for the environment and also better for your health.

  5. No artificial ingredients: Non-irradiated spices do not contain any artificial ingredients or preservatives. This means that you can be sure that you are getting a pure, natural product that is free from any chemical additives.

  6. High-quality: Non-irradiated spices are often of a higher quality than irradiated spices. They are carefully selected for their flavor, aroma, and color, and are less likely to be damaged or degraded during processing.

In conclusion, non-irradiated spices are a healthier and more flavorful option than irradiated spices. They retain more of their natural flavor, aroma, and nutritional value, and are safer as they are not exposed to ionizing radiation.
