Basil Chopped and Dried
 
What is Chopped Basil?
 
This fragrant herb is used as a seasoning in a variety of dishes and plays a key role in Italian and Thai cuisine. There are more than 60 varieties of Basil, with Sweet Basil being one of the most widely used. The herb has rounded leaves that are often pointed. It is a bright green plant, although some varieties have hints of purple or red in their leaves. Sweet Basil has a strong smell and a recognizable flavour. Different varieties of Basil offer slightly different flavours. For instance, Lemon Basil has a tangy lemon taste, while Mint Basil has a refreshing minty taste.
 
Where does Basil Come From?
 
Originally native to India, Asia, and Africa, Basil was held to be a sacred and noble herb. In fact, the word “Basil” comes from the ancient Greek “basilikhon” which means “royal”. Today, Ocimum basilicum (the scientific name for Basil) grows in many places around the world. Many people even grow Basil in their kitchens or gardens.
 
Entirely Ingredients Chopped Basil?
 
Our Chopped Basil is food grade and selected for the highest quality. Basil contains many vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants such as zeaxanthin, beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin. Many of Basils health benefits come from these antioxidants, as well as its essential oils. These compounds mostly disappear during the drying process, so opt for fresh Basil whenever possible to gain the most benefits.
