5 dehydrated spices to use in your meals


Whether you want to add nutrients to the preparation of your favorite foods, or you want to enhance their exquisite flavor. Whatever the case, dehydrated spices can become a great ally in your meals: desserts, sauces, stews, soups, everything tastes delicious!

Adding dehydrated spices to your meals can awaken a wonderful burst of flavor, color and even textures in foods. Some of them add antioxidants to your diet that also fight disease and improve digestive health.

Fresh herbs have a short shelf life, and their flavor tends to fade as they age. Dried herbs, however, can last from one to four years in your pantry without losing their properties.

Knowing this, the prestigious brand El Rancho, offers you a wide variety of spices and dehydrated herbs, to fill each of your dishes with flavor and freshness. Today we would like to present to you a list of herbs and spices of at least five of them. 

Don’t wait any longer. Without further ado, let’s get started! 

1. Minced garlic

Garlic in any of its presentations is a great addition to your diet. It helps increase metabolism, which promotes weight loss and prevents fluid accumulation. It has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that help treat autoimmune diseases, but it also has potent antiviral and antifungal properties that help prevent colds and other infections.

Add El Rancho ground garlic to all your recipes and besides the exquisite flavor in your meals, you will also get all these health benefits.

2. Laurel


El Rancho bay leaves are perfect for preparing slow-cooked dishes, since the flavor and essence of this dehydrated spice is characterized by releasing its different flavors and properties as the cooking process progresses. 

However, it should be noted that the properties of bay laurel prevent the development of stomach discomfort, reduces inflammation and gas, and also improves the entire digestion process. Therefore, adding it to your meals will prevent them from causing you discomfort and, on the contrary, you will be able to enjoy them without guilt.  

3. Oregano

Oregano is an herb that has been used since ancient times to combat different diseases related to the intestinal tract. It has also been used in diseases of viral, bacterial and fungal origin. 

However, the most popular use of this herb, both dried and fresh, is in cooking. Although its use has spread throughout the world, this herb is characteristic of Greek and Italian cuisine. For the flavor to be as concentrated as desired, it is best to add it at the end of cooking.

4. Basil

Basil has different uses, but the main ones are for flavor and aroma. In the southern region of the continent it is a commonly used plant, so growing it in small gardens or pots is ideal. 

However, for practicality or when it is not so accessible, it can be obtained as a dehydrated spice. An example of this is El Rancho basil.

It can be added to various preparations such as sauces, stews, soups, meats, etc.

5. Cumin


Cumin is very popular in traditional Mediterranean cuisine. Although it usually provides an incredible extra flavor to each of its preparations, as it has such a strong flavor, it is advisable to be careful when adding it to your preparations.
