"Spices are woven into the history of nations. Spices and condiments play a
dramatic role in the civilization and history of nation. The delightful flavor and
pungency of spices make them indispensable in the preparation of palatable dishes. The
desire to possess and monopolize the spice trade has, in the past, compelled many
navigators to find new routes to spice producing countries. From the beginning of history,
the strongest nations have controlled the spice trade. The same is true today. USA is now
the world's major spice buyer. Asia is still grows most of the spices that once ruled the
trade. In this volume, we have included most of the remaining spices like vanilla, which
is the second most expensive spice after saffron.
In this volume we have attempted to describe all the major type of spices with its
bioactive compounds with carcinogenic properties with other medicinal and pharmacological
properties/use. We have also described inner biosynthetic mechanism of spices since these
compounds play a major role in the culinary, industrial and pharmacological fields."
