Add Some Heat To Your Cooking With Organic, Cold Ground Spices And Additives From This Brand
Kiaan makes seasonally sourced organic cold ground spices for everyday use like chilli powder, turmeric, cumin, and pepper to name a few.
What Makes It Awesome
You’ve heard of cold processed soaps and cold pressed juice. Now get ready for cold ground spices by Kiaan. Armed with the knowledge that heat (produced during the grinding and processing of spices) destroys the essential oils and micronutrients that spices contain (yes, spices do enhance more than just the flavour of our food it would seem), the brand relies on methods rooted in antiquity to give us spices that have not been compromised.
All the raw materials are organic, sourced seasonally and are washed and sun dried to ensure minimum damage. The technology used to grind them replicates hand pounding, but with stainless steel (to avoid hard metal particles from contaminating the finished products). Essential oils and nutrients are preserved, as they haven’t been destroyed by heat. With no additional preservatives, it also means that their shelf life is slightly lower than the commercially available ones, but considering we use them everyday, it shouldn’t be a problem.
Pick up turmeric, chilli (INR 80 for 100 grams) cardamom, nutmeg (INR 150, and 100 for 25 grams) corriander (INR 90 for 100 grams) pepper (INR 150), cumin (INR 80), and other essentials all in powder form. Apart from standalone spices, they also make Idli podi (INR 150), Sambar masala (INR 120) garam masala (INR 150), jaljeera powder (INR 70), and certain super food additives like flax seeds and asofotedia (hing). Contact them via social media to place an order.
What Could Be Better
Currently they only operate out of social media, and don’t take bulk orders unless the order is placed well in advance.
They do accept small orders for gifting of an assorted spice box or health boxes with a curated range of their spices, mixes, and health foods, especially during the festive season or for events.
