Bay Leaves
 
What are Bay Leaves?
 
The Bay Leaf is an herb commonly used in cooking. The leaves and oil can also be used to make medicine. People also use Bay Leaves to treat diabetes, cancer, stomach problems, pain, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
 
Where do Bay Leaves Come From?
 
There are two main varieties of culinary Bay Leaves: Turkish (or Mediterranean) Bay Leaves and California Bay Leaves. We sell Bay Leaves from Turkey. The Turkish variety is the most common, with a more subtle flavour compared to California Bay Leaves, which have more potency and a slightly mint taste. They are distinguishable by the shape of the leaf: Turkish has the more familiar short and fat leaf versus the thinner and longer silhouette of the California variety. The majority of fresh leaves sold in the U.S. are California Bay Leaves while the dried come from Turkey. Adding a fresh California Bay Leaf to a recipe could overpower the flavours of the dish and, thus, dried Turkish Bay Leaves are often preferred.
 
Entirely Ingredients Bay Leaves?
 
Our Bay Leaves are food grade and selected for the highest quality. They can be used for cooking or medicinal purposes. Cooking with Bay Leaves adds flavour without adding extra sodium, fat, or calories. If ground Bay Leaf is used, small amounts of vitamins A, C, and B6 will be consumed.
