Rough around the edges: the warmth of nutmeg whole


Nutmeg whole has a warm, sweet and strongly spicy taste and is very aromatic. The spice adds extra character to both sweet and savoury dishes (or sauces). Nutmeg whole is the core of the fruit that grows on the nutmeg tree. This tree grows in tropical, rainy coastal areas. Indonesia is considered the largest production centre of the spice and accounts for 75% of its cultivation. The whole nutmeg that you can order online from us comes from there. You can buy it in a package of 550 grams.

How do you use nutmeg whole?


Nutmeg whole is used for both sweet and savoury products. Everyone knows grated nutmeg as a spice that we sprinkle on the vegetables just before serving cauliflower, beans, peas or cabbage. But you can also grate whole nutmeg in sauces, ragouts, stews, mashed potatoes and oven dishes. The bittersweet spicy smell and taste give a special depth to these foods. The herb also fits perfectly in dishes with braised meat. And what about adding just that little bit of spice to sweets dishes? Pudding, custard, apple dishes and even cappuccino have no problem being accompanied by some grated nutmeg whole. On the contrary!

Nutmeg whole for ultimate freshness


Although it seems attractive to use ready-made grated nutmeg in your kitchen, nutmeg whole still has a number of surprising advantages. For example, the nutmeg you sprinkle or incorporate into your dishes is always fresh. What's more, nutmeg whole has a stronger flavour than the ready-to-use nutmeg powder.

The dosage to be used


Where dosage is a matter of taste in most cases, this is very slightly different for nutmeg whole. It is advised not to consume more than one eighth of a teaspoon per adult per day. Although this seems very little, it is important not to exceed the maximum dosage. Exceeding it can lead to abdominal pain, dizziness and a restless feeling. Pregnant women in particular should be careful with the use of grated nutmeg whole. If you stick to the recommended dosage, you will only reap the benefits of the healthy properties of the herb. Nutmeg whole contains important minerals such as potassium iron and calcium and have a proven antibacterial effect.
