Stone Grinding – One of the reasons our spices are better!
At Alexandras we buy our spices whole and use the centuries old method of stone grinding. This slow massaging of the spices breaks down the particles at a low temperature, gently releasing the natural oils but retaining the nutritional value.
High temperatures generated by the steel grinders used by other spice manufacturers can destroy sensitive vitamins, resulting in oxidation and rancidity, which then reduces quality and shelf life.
By stone grinding our spices the nutritive losses are minimised because the spices are courser than when steel ground.
