Botanical Name: Myristica fragrans
Nutmeg is the kernel of the fruit of the nutmeg or mace tree. Native to the Moluccas in Indonesia, nutmeg is known to add a unique, warming spice to tea, beverages, and baked goods. Our nutmeg powder is milled from whole, organic Myristica fragrans. Although ground nutmeg is most commonly found in culinary delights, it can also be extracted for its beneficial properties and blended into herbal formulations.
The nutmeg tree is a native of the Banda Islands, a cluster of small volcanic islands historically known as the Spice Islands and now part of the province of Molucca in Indonesia. Nutmeg isn’t really a nut, but the kernel of an apricot-like fruit. The closely related is an arillus, a thin leathery tissue between the stone and the pulp. Nutmeg powder is a popular addition to spice baking recipes and can also be added to herbal teas. Nutmeg belongs to the Myristicaceae family.
