what else you should know

basil powder

Basil has a history of use dating back at least 5,000 years. Although the herb traveled from the Mediterranean to the rest of the world via the spice route, it is still cultivated on a large scale in Egypt today.

In addition to flavor, powdered basil provides nutrients when added to foods or taken as a supplement. The leaf contains significant amounts of vitamins A, C and K, iron, calcium, manganese, copper, folate, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids.
