Ground Oregano
(lippia graveolens)
Oregano, Ground

Unlike some herbs, whose characteristics mellow when they dry, oregano’s flavor and aroma actually intensify. Bitter with a slight lemon highlight, oregano is a member of the mint family. Although, you’d never know it from the way it tastes.

We source our Spice Islands® ground oregano from Mexico because of its high volatile oil content. And only harvest the plants at the peak of their vitality to ensure the most pungent flavor and piercing aroma.

Ground oregano is a great way to hide oregano’s appearance in dressings without removing the flavor or the aroma.

Fun Fact: Oregano has been in America since the 1600s. But it didn’t really take off until the 1940s, when returning World War II soldiers tried to capture the taste of the pizza they enjoyed in Europe.

Our Ground Oregano is only oregano. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
