Production & Sourcing
Harvesting: Organic oregano plants are grown in suitable conditions until they reach the desired maturity. The leaves are usually harvested just before the plant starts to flower, as this is when the flavor and aroma are most concentrated.
Cleaning: The harvested oregano leaves are carefully cleaned to remove dirt, debris, and any damaged leaves.
Drying: The cleaned oregano leaves are spread out in a well-ventilated and dry area to dry.
Air Drying: Air circulation is essential during the drying process. The leaves are left to air dry naturally, which allows the moisture to slowly evaporate.
Monitoring: During the drying process, it’s important to regularly check the leaves to ensure they are drying evenly and not developing mold or other issues.
Crushing and Packaging: Once the oregano leaves are fully dried and become brittle, they are carefully removed from the stems. The leaves are then gently crushed or crumbled to create smaller pieces suitable for culinary use.

Dried organic oregano offers a robust and aromatic flavor profile with earthy, slightly bitter, and peppery notes. Its flavor is often more intense compared to non-organic varieties, as organic cultivation practices can contribute to stronger essential oil content.
Similar to non-organic dried oregano, dried organic oregano has a brittle and crumbly texture due to the removal of moisture during the drying process. The leaves are delicate and can be easily crushed or crumbled between your fingers.
Dried organic oregano typically retains a deep green to brown color, similar to its non-organic counterpart. The color becomes darker as the herb dries, though it might maintain a vibrant green hue if the drying process is carefully controlled.
Dried organic oregano, like non-organic oregano, contains antioxidants, phenolic acids, and flavonoids that contribute to its potential health benefits. Organic cultivation practices may affect the nutritional content, but it’s generally a valuable source of flavor rather than significant nutrients.
The drying process of organic oregano removes moisture, enhancing its shelf life and intensifying its flavor. The absence of moisture also allows it to be used for binding in dry spice blends, rubs, and coatings, as it can adhere well to other ingredients.
Organic oregano’s essential oils contribute to its strong and aromatic scent. The organic cultivation methods might influence the concentration of these oils, potentially enhancing its aromatic properties
Dried organic oregano, similar to non-organic, can offer a balancing effect in dishes by counteracting richness with its slightly bitter and earthy notes. Its aromatic qualities can also help harmonize the overall flavor profile of a dish.
Dried organic oregano adds a burst of herbal brightness and complexity, creating contrast in dishes. Its flavor can stand out against milder ingredients, adding depth and dimension to various recipes.
Organic oregano, like its non-organic counterpart, holds cultural significance in Mediterranean cuisine, particularly in dishes from Greece, Italy, and other countries in the region. Its use might align with the emphasis on organic and sustainable ingredients in modern culinary practices.
Dried organic oregano is generally considered safe for consumption and can be included in various diets, including vegetarian and vegan diets. As with any herb or spice, individuals with allergies or sensitivities should be cautious and check labels to ensure it’s suitable for them.
