Hi,

I was wondering if using powdered/ground spices is just as good as using fresh spices?

I don't think it would benefit my wallet buying fresh spices and having to throw away what I don't use so I think powdered would suit me better.

What I don't want though is to be using the powdered spices and gain no benefit from them.

Can anyone offer advice?

 

Thanks kindly,

 

Neil

I like to use fresh whenever I can, but powdered spices can have higher concentrations of active compounds. Just ensure you are buying organic, fresh spices and use them as quickly as possible to ensure potency.
Thanks for the reply Sarah, IThanks for the reply Sarah, I have used powdered cinnamon and ginger so far and they really add a kick to my blast. I will give fresh spices a try soon too. Neil
