Green Week 2016: The world of aromas and essences

An invitation to browse the Product Market “Herbs, Spices, Tea” with all one’s senses

Berlin, 2 December 2015 – Immerse yourself in the world of aromas and essences, spices and odours: visitors to the International Green Week Berlin are invited to browse the exhibits at the Product Market ‘Herbs, Spices, Tea’, using all their senses. From 15 to 24 January 2015 in Hall 6.2b, for example, there will be opportunities to sample smoked chili, mango curry and chili threads from Madagascar, or 13 flavours of calorie-free sweet dips, all made without adding sugar. They are ideal for making fruit yoghurt, fromage frais desserts and milk shakes. Madagascar wild pepper, as well as zulu and garlic pepper are also available. This is also the place to find Arabian coffee spice or hot, spicy combinations such as Caramba Mexico and Fire of Casablanca. The natural remedy red ginseng from South Korea is also featured, along with fine saffron, which is being presented by exhibitors from Afghanistan and Iran, among others. And for those in search of the unusual there are metre-long strips of liquorice from Finland!

Almost every kind of herb and fruit tea is available, from ginger vanilla to peach and pineapple, and “Apple Strudel“ fruit tea containing pieces of apple, grape, roasted chicory root, cinnamon bark, almond flakes and pieces of vanilla. The range on display also includes dried fruit and nuts from all over the world. Eating dried fruit is a healthy way to satisfy the hunger for sweet things. Dates, dried apricots and figs are all important sources of energy. Nuts contain valuable oils and numerous trace elements as well as unsaturated fatty acids. A small handful each day assists the digestion as well as benefiting the heart and circulation. In particular the B vitamins and amino acids in nuts support the process of cell renewal in the body.
