Product Details

Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a versatile herb that is widely used in culinary applications and traditional medicine. It is known for its strong flavour, which is a combination of earthy, peppery and slightly bitter notes. Here are various uses, both culinary and medicinal, associated with oregano:

Culinary Uses:

  1. Seasoning: Oregano is a key ingredient in many savoury dishes, especially in Mediterranean and Italian cuisines. It is often used to season sauces, soups, stews, and various meat and vegetable dishes.

  2. Pizza Topping: Dried oregano is a classic topping for pizzas. It adds a robust and aromatic flavour that complements the tomato sauce and cheese.

  3. Marinades: Oregano is commonly used in marinades for meats, poultry, and fish. It enhances the overall flavour profile of the dish.

  4. Salad Dressings: Fresh or dried oregano can be used in salad dressings, providing a distinctive herbaceous taste to salads.

  5. Grilled Vegetables: Oregano works well with grilled vegetables. Sprinkle over vegetables before grilling for added flavor.

  6. Pasta Dishes: Oregano is a staple herb in pasta sauces and dishes. It pairs well with tomatoes, garlic and olive oil.

Medicinal Uses:

  1. Antioxidant Properties: Oregano contains compounds such as rosmarinic acid and thymol, which have antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help neutralise free radicals in the body.

  2. Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Some studies suggest that oregano may have anti-inflammatory effects, which could be beneficial for conditions associated with inflammation.

  3. Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties: Oregano has been studied for its potential antibacterial and antifungal properties. It may help combat certain bacteria and fungi.
