You are right! Didn’t think to actually look at the label. I peeled off the bar code to look at the ingredients.
Zamouri’s: Tumeric, Ginger, Cinnamon, Fennel, Anise Seed, Cardamon, Galangal, Star Anise, Cayenne Pepper, Nigella, Paprika, Rosebuds, Salt, Ajwan seeds, Lavender Blossoms, Mace and other spices. (their web site also mentions cloves and kala jeera, over 35 herbs and spices)
Coriander, Cumin, Fennel, Allspice, Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Anise, Cardamom, Ginger, Nutmeg, Rose Petals, Turmeric, Lavender.
Cumin, Ginger, Tumeric, Salt, Cinnamon, Black Pepper, White Pepper, Coriander, Cayenne Pepper, All Spice, Nutmeg, Cloves
Spice Ace: Cinnamon, Turmeric, Ginger Powder, Fenugreek, Black Pepper, Coriander, Allspice, Nutmeg, Cayenne Pepper, Cloves, Cumin, Sea Salt
I wonder why there is such a large price variation. Zamouri’s, Kalustyan’s and Spice Ace are relatively pricey. Exotic ingredients? (though most don’t seem exotic) labor? any idea?
