Culinary Uses

Thyme is at home in most Mediterranean dishes and pairs perfectly with fish and chicken dishes, and the perfect complement with tomatoes and lemons.

Nutrition

Thyme is packed with numerous health benefiting phyto-nutrients (plant derived compounds), minerals and vitamins that are essential for overall wellness. In particular Thyme is a good source of vitamin C, potassium and iron. 

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants boost your immune system, and may protect against cancer, heart disease, cataracts and infection. Vitamin C also helps with the absorption of iron and zinc found in other foods.

IRON

Iron is an essential mineral with several important roles in the body. For example, it helps to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. 

POTASSIUM

High potassium and low sodium levels may help prevention of high blood pressure.
