When we talk about exotic food and spices, we think about India, a country with a rich culture and a millenary tradition of spice production and trading.
Since our portfolio features some of the most exotic Indian spices, we decided to dedicate this post to honor these exquisite flavors and briefly introduce each one to you:
Ground Bird's Eye Chili
Among the ten hottest chili peppers globally, the Bird's eye Chili, also known as Thai Chili, Thai Dragon, or Piri Piri, is usually found in Africa and Southeast Asia. It's well known for its robust and hot taste but mild flavor, spicing up any dish without changing its balance. This Chili is also famous for its health benefits: It improves digestion, helps treat arthritis, and reduces blood pressure, among many more.
If you are a fan of hot flavors, our Bird's Eye Chili is perfect for you.
Organic Black Sesame Seeds and Organic Hulled Sesame Seeds
First grown in India around 3500 BC, Sesame seeds are one of the oldest oilseed crops. Thanks to its versatility, it has a long story as an ingredient of recipes across many different cultures worldwide.
Sesame seeds come in three colors: White, golden, and black. The black variety is more prevalent in Asian countries and gourmet recipes.

Cayenne Pepper has an impressive nutrition profile, featuring various antioxidants that prevent and treat diverse diseases. It is highly demanded in several five-star restaurants for adding an interesting spicy touch to any recipe.

Organic Seeds and Ground Coriander
At this point, we have been talking about spices produced from the plant's fruit. Now let's talk about herbs, like Coriander, also known as Cilantro or Chinese Parsely.
This intensely flavored ingredient, trendy worldwide, is mainly used fresh. Despite coming from the same plant, leaves, seeds, and powder have different flavors. Besides, high-quality seeds and ground coriander are usually hard to find. Not for us, though. Thanks to our network of suppliers in India, we are proud of offering only the best organic ground coriander.
Organic Yellow Mustard
Mustard has been one of the most widely grown and used spices globally for many centuries. It has been used as a culinary spice by cultures worldwide, adding a piquant bite to many regional dishes, condiments, and seasoning blends.
Not only is it tasty, but Yellow Mustard also has significant health benefits that include relief from muscular pains, ringworm, and respiratory disorders.
Organic Ginger Powder
Ginger is one of the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. Its use in India and China has been known for centuries. Nowadays, India is the most significant producer of Ginger in the world.
Ginger gives an aromatic, hot, zesty, and biting yet sweet and warm touch to food. It pairs well with a broad range of flavors, making it one of the favorite spices among chefs since it can elevate and enhance the flavors of almost any type of preparation.
This spice is not only flavorful but also extremely healthy. Among many other benefits, Ginger may help with weight loss, help prevent cancer, lower cholesterol levels, relieve chronic indigestion, morning sickness, and improves heart disease risk factors. It is so powerful that Ayurvedic medicine calls it "the universal medicine."
Turmeric, also known as the "Golden Spice" dates back nearly 4000 years to India's Vedic culture. This almost miraculous plant is not only full of color (a vibrant orange) and flavor, but it may also be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.
With powerful antioxidant properties, Turmeric helps fight inflammation, potentially reducing the risk for various chronic diseases. Famous for its versatility as an ingredient, it can be sparkled, blended, or mixed on almost any dish.
Our worldwide suppliers allow TVT Brands to offer you a Higher Quality of Turmeric brought directly from India.
Kala Namak Salt
Kala Namak is a kiln-fired rock salt with a sulfurous, pungent smell. It is also known as "Himalayan black salt" since it comes from the salts mined in the regions surrounding the Himalayas.
This salt is used extensively in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal cuisines as a condiment and added to chutneys, salads, all kinds of fruits, raitas, and many other savory Indian snacks.
It is one of five salts within our portfolio, also highly demanded due to its eccentric flavor and color, which comes from its unique chemical composition.
