There's nothing in this bottle but pure, organic, Premium Hand Select Grade true bay laurel leaves (Laurus nobilis). No GMOs. No ETO (considered carcinogenic by the EPA). Not irradiated. Certified Organic by QAI. Kosher Certified by KSA. Sweet, earthy aroma. Savory, balsamic, good-bitter flavor. This is the true bay experience. You may not know it when you taste it, but you know when it’s missing. That stew or seafood dish just seem to need something? This is it.
Our bay leaves are Premium Hand Select Grade. This means that after mechanical sorting, two rounds of hand selection are done to ensure that these leaves are the best of the best. Only about 1% of all bay leaves meet the criteria for this grade. And get this. Most of the bay sold in the United States during peak season is from the previous fall’s harvest. We source bay leaves mainly from the northern coast of Turkey, where the harvest occurs in February and March. The leaves are then dried and shipped in time to be packaged for the current holiday season — providing the fresh, robust flavor of recently harvested bay. Real bay. Real quality. Real flavor.
