Spices are the dried form of various seeds, roots, fruits, barks,
vegetables, and other plant substances primarily used for coloring, flavoring, and preserving the food.
They are found everywhere in the world and form an essential part of the culinary practices of all the cultures.
Their original use was as a flavoring agent,
which then demonstrated antimicrobial properties by keeping the food fresh for longer durations and
improving the health of those who ate them regularly.
