Taste & Nutritional Value

Basil is nearly calorie free and filled with antioxidants, vitamins and phenolics, rich in Vitamin K, Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Dietary Fiber. Traditional Basil flavor.


Native to India and ancient Persia, basil has been cultivated for centuries. It is told by ancient legend to have healing powers. In many cultures Basil is a symbol of love, protection and truth in many cultures. Interestingly, in Ancient Greece and Rome, basil represented hate and misfortune, and growers would often shout at their plants, believing it would help them grow. Due to divisive opinions regarding basil, there was no consensus on whether or not basil contained health benefits or was poisonous. Today, basil is used medicinally. Its oil is often used to treat depression, anxiety, colds, coughs, sore throats as well as insect bites and stings.

Recommended For (Recipes)

Grind sweet basil with garlic, olive oil, and pine nuts for a versatile and delicious pesto sauce for pasta, pizza, and dip. You can also add whole leaves to caprese sandwiches and salads.
