  • Good to know

    Who didn't feel like having exaggerated it with the garlic from time to time?! So it's best to brush your teeth immediately! But chewing cardamom seeds helps just as well; therefore, it is used as chewing gum in India. In the 16th century, cardamom was one of the most expensive spices in the world (and still is today) and a handful cost up to a monthly wage (today, thank God, much less), but the whole of Europe loved this spice. That’s why it is called "The Queen of Spices" (the king is the pepper)! Most people probably know cardamom as a Christmas spice, although it is now part of the fixed repertoire in many national cuisines. The green cardamom originates in India, but today Guatemala is the largest producer. The main consumer, with about 60-80% of the world's production, is the Middle East, where it is an important part of the Gahwa or Gahira, an aromatic coffee served for hospitality. This is an almost clear, gold-coloured coffee.

  • Usage

    Either the green seed capsules can be easily crushed so that they burst, or the seeds are released from the capsules and crushed in the mortar. In the second variant, the cardamom can be eaten, which is particularly suitable for meatballs or desserts.

    Attention: There are a large number of different types of cardamom, such as the green Thai cardamom, the Nepal cardamom, the brown Chinese cardamom and so on. But, as always in life, there can only be one true cardamom (long live the queen) – and this is the green cardamom. In India there is a second species – the black cardamom

    Roast them dry to create a nutty aroma and cook them in fat.

  • Tipp

    For getting a fresher aroma, the seeds should be taken out of the capsules and ground.

  • Health aspects

    In traditional medicine in most Asian countries, cardamom is considered one of THE remedies. This is especially true for diseases in the oral area and digestive problems, but this has now been confirmed by modern science.



    Abdominal area

    Cardamom is the number 1 spice for stomach cramps and pains, as it has anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic effects.



    Throat & mouth

    The essential oil "Cineol" in cardamom has an antiseptic effect and kills bacteria that can cause bad breath. At the same time, however, it also strengthens the gums and can prevent periodontosis.


    Blood & Heart

    High blood pressure can be reduced with regular consumption of cardamom (approx. 3g per day) – and without any side effects. Just the addition of cardamom to the coffee (or tea) makes it very easy to integrate it into the daily diet.

    The formation of blood clots can also be prevented by regular use of cardamom, which also reduces the risk of heart attacks.
