There have been several articles published discussing the positive health effects of herbs and spices. There is ongoing research for instance with saffron to prove its destructive effects against certain types of cancer cells, while cinnamon is proven to have a positive effect on blood sugar levels, and curcuma speeds up digestion.
The otherwise popular dry sauces continued to see rather flat growth in 2018.
