Sumac Spice : The Superfood Spice that will help You fight Inflammation
The ancient herb sumac—made from ruby-colored berries that are ground into a beautiful, coarse powder that bursts with color and flavor. It’s been used to add tangy, fresh flavors in Lebanese, Syrian, Armenian, and Iranian cooking for many millennia. Sumac is the secret ingredient in endless Middle Eastern mezzes, salads, rice dishes, stews, and kebabs.
Sumac is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory spices out there. It ranks high on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) chart, which means it's packed with antioxidants and has the ability to neutralize free radicals that can cause cancer, heart disease, and signs of aging. Sumac is also a beneficial ingredient for those with type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that daily intake of sumac for three months will lower the risk of cardiovascular disease among people with type 2 diabetes.
