Frequently Asked Questions
Almond Flour or Almond Meal? What is the difference?
As an almond flour alternative, an almond meal is more versatile because it can be used for baking, cooking, and even making nut-free dishes.
Almond flour could also contain gluten making it difficult for some people to digest. Avoid gluten-free food if you have celiac disease, or any other digestive disorder.
Almond flour isn’t considered a superfood per se but it does contain healthy fats, fibre and protein and no cholesterol.
The almond meal offers many nutritional benefits including iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese (thiamin), calcium, vitamin A, B1 and Vitamin C.
Almond flour is made with almonds. Almond oils contain polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. Both types lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL(good cholesterol).
Almond flour is also rich in antioxidants such as flavonoids and phenolics. These compounds are effective in preventing oxidative damages caused by free radicals.
The Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry published a study that found almond flour to have the same antioxidant activity as blueberries, cranberries and pomegranates.
Almond milk is often sold with almond flour, which has been fortified with additional nutrients.
Does Thai use ginger?
The answer is yes. Traditional Thai cooking makes extensive use of ginger. It is commonly added to stir-fries or soups. Ginger is also used in desserts such as lassis.
Ginger is a native of China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries. Its origins go back over 5,000 years. It is believed that ginger originated in Southeast Asia where it was grown for medicinal purposes.
Ginger is known for stimulating digestion and relieving nausea. It may even help prevent migraines. Ginger is also known to reduce muscle spasms and joint pains as well as treating arthritis.
Ginger is most often fresh in Thailand. Ginger root is first cut into thin strips before drying and stored. Ginger root can be purchased in cans or jars at Asian markets.
What Thai spice should I use to cook Thai food in my own kitchen?
To make authentic Thai food at home, you'll need to master five essential spices: black pepper, cayenne, coriander seeds, turmeric, and cinnamon. Each ingredient has its own unique flavour profile, and each plays an important role in creating delicious dishes.
Black pepper enhances the savoury flavors of curry powder, while cinnamon gives it sweetness. Curry powder gets its yellow hue from turmeric and coriander seeds. Cayenne peppers are hot, and cilantro adds freshness. A final ingredient is cinnamon, which adds depth and complexity.
You can find each of these spices at your local grocery store, but if you'd instead buy them online, here are our recommendations for where to shop.
What's the difference in cooking with whole vs. ground spices? Ground Spices?
There isn't any difference between cooking with whole spices and ground spices. All spices are ground after harvesting. So there is no difference in quality.
But the price gap is significant. Whole spices are more expensive because of the labor required to process them. But the taste is worth it.
If you purchase whole spices in bulk, you might get an additional discount. A whole bag of cinnamon sticks might be eligible for a discount.
The same goes for nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cardamom, etc. You might be able to save money by buying these spices in bulk.
Whole spices can also last longer than the ground spices. Ground spices lose their potency rapidly due to oxygenation.
But the main reason why we recommend purchasing whole spices is that they add a lot of character to recipes.
For instance, you can make a delicious curry with whole turmeric instead of ground turmeric. To make a spice mixture for chicken dishes, you can grind whole coriander seed.
The process of grinding spices takes a lot of time. It makes sense to purchase large quantities of whole spices when you are buying them. So you don't run short of spices.
Do Thai foods contain cumin?
Cumin is a popular spice in Thai cuisine. Many Thai dishes are made with cumin, garlic, ginger and coriander.
Stir-fries and soups, as well as salads, are some of the most popular uses for cumin. Cumin is also often added to marinades, dressings, and sauces. Cumin is a key ingredient in Thai food. However, there are many other spices.
You can add flavours such as fish sauce, garlic ginger, chili peppers, and ginger to the mix. These spices can be combined in different ways to create authentic Thai dishes.
Cumin is a key ingredient in Thai cuisine and can be found in many of the traditional Thai dishes. The complex flavours of cumin add a special flavor to Thai cuisine. Cumin spices many Thai dishes and is an integral part of Thai cuisine.
By adding spices such as cumin to their dishes, chefs can create delicious and unique flavours that capture the essence of Thai cooking. So the answer to the question is yes - cumin is a critical component in many traditional Thai dishes.
What kind of mint is used to make Thai food?
Lime-leaf mint (Mentha cervina) is the most commonly used type of mint in Thai cuisine.
It has a mild, citrusy flavour that gives dishes a freshness and zing. To enhance Thai cuisine's flavour, other spices like galangal, coriander, lemongrass and garlic are often added.
Mint is a versatile herb that can be used in both sweet as well as savoury meals. Using the right spices, herbs, and aromatics is essential to achieving delicious authentic Thai flavours.
Next time you make Thai food, add some lime-leafmint for more flavor!

How can I store my cooking spices?
How to store cooking spices in a way that maximizes their performance. First of all, we need to establish an understanding of the science behind the storage of foodstuffs.
Keep spices out of direct sunlight as light will reduce their flavor. This is due to oxygen combining with organic compounds, such as spices.
To prevent oxidation of spices, keep them in dark cupboards. These conditions can cause spices to quickly lose their flavor.
Keep spices in airtight containers away from direct sun to preserve their flavour.
You can flavor water by adding herbs and spices. To make a cinnamon-flavored drink, combine two teaspoons of ground ginger with half a cup of warm water. Stir and mix well. Add a squeezed lemon juice and serve immediately.
You can add dried herbs and spices to soups, stews, casseroles, pasta, rice dishes, salads, and desserts. Simply sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over the dish and sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
As snacks, leftover cooked vegetables and fruits can be added into your favourite recipes.
If you want to take advantage of the flavours of fresh herbs and spices, chop or tear them up and add them to foods while they're still hot. You can freeze herbs or spices by placing them on ice cube tray or muffin cups. Once frozen transfer to zip-top plastic bags or freezer bags.
