Know your herbs, spices and antioxidants

Some studies indicate that the herbs and spices we use in cooking might be doing more than just giving our taste buds a boost. One single gram (half a teaspoon) of cloves provides the same antioxidant benefits that a half-cup of blueberries or cranberries would. A half-cup of dried oregano is the antioxidant equivalent of half a cup of sweet potatoes.

Both fresh and dried herbs and spices contain significant levels of antioxidants. Here’s a list:



Fresh and Dried

• Lemon • Allspice  • Marjoram  • Basil  • Oregano  • Cinnamon  • Peppermint  • Cloves  • Sage  • Marjoram  • Thyme  • Oregano  • Rosemary  • Saffron  • Tarragon  • Thyme
