Product Description

Cardamom Pod Powder, Certified Organic

Also Known As -Elettaria cardamomum, Amomum cardamomum, Bai Dou Kou, Cardamon, Cardomomi Fructus, Ela.

Origin - Guatemala

Overview - This member of the Ginger family (Zingiberaceae) hails from India. Interestingly, Guatemala is the largest exporter of Cardamom seedpods today, followed by India. The seeds have an incredibly strong, aromatic, almost intoxicating aroma and while black Pepper was called the King of Spices, Cardamom has been called the Queen. The seeds have been traded as a commodity and are reputed to be the third most expensive spice by weight next to saffron and vanilla. It has found its way into regional cuisine in India, Southeast Asia, China, Finland, and many other countries. One of the most refreshing ways to experience Cardamom is to drink a fine cup of Chai spiced with cardamom. The seeds contain a very high amount of volatile oils, characteristic of so many of the aromatic plants and have been used medicinally as a digestive aid by most cultures.

Parts Used - The seed, removed from the pod, and ground. Whole pods may be used as well.

Medicinal Uses - Traditional cultures and literature reference Cardamom as a Stomachic and Carminative. Both of these functions relate to digestion, the former promoting and assisting digestion and the latter to assist in the expulsion of intestinal gas or the reduction of gas production by the digestive apparatus. The main activity of Cardamom can be attributed to the volatile oils which give it the distinct flavor and aroma. These volatile oils promote the absorption and elimination of gas, while improving digestive function and providing natural support to the intestine.

  •  Seeds are used as a spice in cooking and as a flavoring in other medicines.

Preparations - Usually in cooking, but also in teas, tinctures, and infusions. 

  • For indigestion, mix 15 pulverized seeds in 1/2 cup hot water. Add 1 oz. of fresh gingerroot and a cinnamon stick. Simmer 15 minutes over low heat. Add 1/2 cup milk and simmer 10 more minutes. Add 2 or 3 drops of vanilla. Sweeten with honey. Drink 1 to 2 cups daily.
