Spices are seeds, fruit, root, bark or plant substance that is used for flavouring, colouring or preserving food. Spices differ from herbs, as they are the leaf, flower or stem of a plant. Aside from flavouring foods, spices also have antimicrobial properties, which is why they are often used extensively in warmer climates that have more infectious diseases, and especially why the use of spice is prominent in flavouring meat, which is susceptible to spoiling. The spice trade began in the Middle East and south Asia and slowly spread across the world, first i the form of medicine, then as a flavouring for food. As cultures have moved into new areas and people have travelled, slowly the spice culture has mixed into every day life.
