THE VALUE OP SPICES
Experiments that " have fcfeen
conducted recently with "a View .
to determining the preservative
value of various spices and condi
ments seem to establish tlte'faCt
that certain spices have a 'marked
preservative effect on foods.
Cinnamon, for instance, is
found to be a more powerful
enemy of ferments than benzoic
acid and at the same time quite
harmless. Other condiments that
are useful as preservatives are
cloves and mustard, with nutmeg
and alL spice effective in some
wha't less degree.
On the other hand such drastic, s
condiments as ginger, black pep-
per arid cayenne pepper do not
hinder the growth of germs.
Thus it appears thatjeinnamon,
cloves, mustard, nutmeg and all
spice may be used with good ad
vantage in seasoning foods, since
they are not only palatable, but
also exert a good 'effect on the
food itself. - ' -'
Ginger and pepper, on rthe
other hand, may well be avoided,
since they do not exert any go'titi
effects on the food-andre-irritt-ing
