Allspice


Pure Allspice berries, the essential ingredient to authentic Caribbean and Middle Eastern cuisine! These berries hail from Turkey and work great when infused into a variety of stews. It's equally special when powdered, as it carries notes of Nutmeg and Cinnamon - unlike common Peppercorns. Get creative and see what other uses you can come up with for this exotic berry. Also known as: Jamaica pepper, pepper, myrtle pepper, pimenta, turkish Yenibahar, pimento, newspice, all spice.


Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals.

Amla (Gooseberry)

Amla are Indian Gooseberries. Very sour, strong flavours, and also also a natural wonder. The Amla tree was original considered sacred by Hindus, and said to have originated from the nectar of gods. So much for history - what we care about at Regency Spices most is the flavour. Amla Powder is a great way to add variety to snacks by using as a garnish. You can also mix with honey, turmeric, ginger, or pepper to make an Amla Chutney. This works great as a dip for fried Indian snacks such as Samosas and Pakoras. Recently, western medicine has also discovered the benefits of Amla for hair - dry Amla Powder is very commonly used as a key component in shampoos, hair oils, wraps and tonics for maintaining luscious healthy looking hair.

Aniseed

This seed is not to be confused with Star Anise, Aniseed is an entirely different spice found in the Mediterranean and is one of the most popular spices in cooking today because of it's unbeatable sweet and fresh taste. Regency Aniseed from Turkey imparts a beautiful liquorice, cardamom and honey flavour. It's highly aromatic, and very convenient to use, just like any other seed. Many times in industry, it's also diluted with Carom Seeds, a seed which looks very similar, but has an entirely different flavour. Also known as: anise, saunf, sombu, badishop, variyali.

Annatto Seeds

Pure Annatto Seeds from South America, Peru. These seeds are perfect for putting into curries - with that turmeric, ginger paprika flavour. They're also fantastic in mexican and south american cuisine. Make into a paste and use for fish and tacos. Annatto Seeds are a brilliant deep red colour, and also commonly used as a food colouring in Red Velvet Cakes and other pastries.

Asafoetida (Hing)

India's method of flavouring vegetarian dishes to have the same rich savoury flavour commonly found in meat. A housewife's favourite. Use powder as any other dry spice at the beginning of the cooking process. 

Please note: Asafoetida is a tree sap and thus very perishable when fresh. We must combine it with gum and a little amount of wheat in order to dry and transform it into a powder. Thus this is our only item that is NOT gluten free or 100% pure. We still strive to keep it as pure as possible, so our Asafoetida is 50%+ pure, and as good as we know is possible.

Black Cumin (Nigella)

Black Cumin is a bitter spice, used sparingly to add an intense depth of flavour to food. It's best used to flavour liquors, spice rubs and bread. Use in small quantities, this exotic spice goes a long way!

Cacao Nibs (ORGANIC)

Cacao is one of the world's most popular flavourings. It's the source of chocolate! Pure Cacao, although full of flavour, is also bitter, so it's usually mixed with cream and sugar to balance out the flavour. Regency Cacao comes from Peru, where we find a lovely caramel fruity chocolate flavour, grown and processed to perfection in the wild Amazon rainforests. Cacao Nibs are amongst the purest Cacao Products possible that are suitable for long term storage. Cacao Nibs are the result of a long and heartfelt farming process, where nearly all defects in bad cultivation can be noticed. Cacao Nibs are also very high in fat, making them ideal for melting down into cacao butter for ganaches, creams and pure chocolate. Regency Cacao Nibs are already roasted for maximum flavour and convenience, and are also USDA and EU Organic Certified.

Cacao Powder (ORGANIC)

Cacao is one of the world's most popular flavourings. It's the source of chocolate! Pure Cacao, although full of flavour, is also bitter, so it's usually mixed with cream and sugar to balance out the flavour. Regency Cacao comes from Peru, where we find a lovely caramel fruity chocolate flavour, grown and processed to perfection in the wild Amazon rainforests. Cacao Powder is the result of a long, labourous and mechanical process previously not possible, as it needs to be milled at a cooler temperature below 50 degrees C to better preserve all the flavours and nutrients. Traditional cocoa grinding generates a lot of heat, and thus resulting in a different flavour and nutrient profile. Regency Cacao Powder is also USDA and EU Organic Certified.
