Simply Organic Bay Leaf


0.14 ounce
Let’s get real about bay leaves. Laurus nobilis is the only botanical the FDA recognizes as bay and approves for consumption as a spice. An inferior herb — Umbellularia californica, also known as “California bay” — is sometimes sold as bay. It’s longer, darker leaves make it seem more appealing than true bay, but “California bay” has a harsher, more camphor-like flavor. And, one of its key constituents, umbellulone, can induce headaches. That’s just not cool. We authenticate every shipment of our bay to make sure you’re getting real Laurus nobilis, the only bay suitable for culinary use.
Relationships matter. People matter. In Turkey, laurel leaf collection is traditionally a side-source of income for families. But younger people are leaving the area for more lucrative city jobs. We and our sustainable sourcing partner Kutas are working with a collector cooperative that is adding value for its members by drying and processing laurel leaves themselves. We’re installing clean, energy-efficient dryers and providing training on proper forest management. The new dryers will increase the co-op’s capacity, creating more appealing job opportunities and reducing respiratory risk for workers.
