The Encyclopedia of Herbs and Spices provides comprehensive coverage of the taxonomy, botany, chemistry, functional properties, medicinal uses, culinary uses and safety issues relating to over 250 species of herbs and spices. These herbs and spices constitute an important agricultural commodity and are indispensable for pharmaceuticals, flavoring foods and beverages, and in the perfumery and cosmetic industries. More recently, they are increasingly being identified as having high nutraceutical potential and
important value in human healthcare. An invaluable reference tool, this book:

• Presents easily accessible information, including up-to-date nomenclature and taxonomy
• Is beautifully illustrated with over 250 figures
• Begins with an introductory chapter on the definition, classification, history, and applications of herbs and spices worldwide
