The flavor of the holidays.

Whole Nutmeg
(myristica fragrans)
Nutmeg, Whole

Warm and aromatic with hints of clove, nutmeg has long been a favorite of bakers. Though, its distinctive flavor can enhance a variety of sweet or savory dishes.

We source our Spice Islands® whole nutmeg from the East and West Indies. High in volatile oil content, it’s cryogenically ground to preserve its flavor compounds. The result is a whole nutmeg that very closely matches the flavor of the whole spice.

For the best results, grate your nutmeg as you need it. But keep in mind that our Spice Islands® nutmeg is especially potent, so you may want to use a little less than what’s called for in the recipe.

Fun Fact: The nutmeg tree actually produces two different spices, nutmeg and mace. Nutmeg comes from the seed of the tree and mace comes from the lacy substance that covers it.

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