Granny's Spices uses a state-of-the art cryogenic grinding technology that instantly freezes the spices and lock in their natural flavor and color. Cryogenic grinding is a method of powdering spices at sub-zero temperatures ranging from 0 to minus 70°F. The spices are frozen with liquid nitrogen as they are being powdered. This process does not damage or alter the chemical composition of the spices in any way. Normal grinding processes which do not use a cooling system can reach up to 200°F. These high temperatures can reduce volatile components and heat-sensitive constituents in herbs. The cryogenic grinding process starts with air-dried spices, rather than freeze-dried spices. Spices processed using Cryo-grinding has better natural color, as compared to conventional process, this is very much important all spices.
