I'm a convert

I've been making my own vanilla extract for over a decade and used to buy my beans based on reviews at a Infamous Global seller. Was never sure what I would get. Then I found this company! The beans were beautiful! Fragrant, moist but not too moist, easy to cut open to expose the seeds and each Bean was six to seven inches long. I'm a happy extract maker! 💝💃🥳

High Quality Vanilla - excellent customer service.

Slo Food group team takes great care of their customers. Received a broken bottle of Vanilla and it was immediately handled. Received my replacement bottle within 3 days.
This extract is used to make our Tahitian Vanilla Cakes!

Authentic Mastic Gum from the Greek Island of Chios

The aromatic and air dried resinous sap from the tree pistacia lentiscus is known as the first natural chewing gum in the world. The mastic tree grows solely on the southern shores of Chios. Once dried, the tears are ideal for cocktails, ice creams, and used in an array of traditional medical practices.

Our mastic is one hundred percent an all natural product from the protected designation of origin. Chios mastisha does not contain any fillers, additives or additional ingredients.

What is the flavor like

Appearance should be transparent or opaque with crystalline granules in varying teardrop shapes and sizes. The color will be off-white to yellowish. This aromatic and resinous matter comes from the sap of pistacia lentiscus var, an evergreen related to the pistachio tree. It can be used as a dinner digestive, in cakes, spirits, beverages and nutritional products.

Elegant, bold and aromatic, mastiha is used in both sweet and savory dishes. In Greece, Turkey and other parts of the Middle East, mastic has been used in cooking, baking, medicinal, and liquors. Medicinally, these tear drops of flavor have been shown to alleviate a number of issues such as digestive and oral conditions. The use of Chios mastiha is so well documented that it is recognized by the European Food Safety Authority, EFSA.

The word mastic coming from mastication meaning chewing but it can be used for more than just fresh breath. Chios mastiha can be used in food by freezing and grinding in a blender ( be sure to not blend on too high or too long as the blender will heat up the resin) or by hand with a mortar and pestle. It is commonly mixed with sugar or salt for seasoning and flavor. Most famously mastiha is used in tsoureki (Greek Easter bread), Mastic ice cream and Turkish delight candies. Egyptian cooking often uses mastic in chicken dishes paired with spices like cinnamon or cardamom. It is neither herb nor spice but a beneficial flavor resin.

The bold and aromatic character are due to the concentrated resinous nature of the product. Mastic can be described as delicately piney with notes of fennel, lemon zest, anise and even mint. The flavor is refreshing but can be easily overpowered in spice mixes. Try some today and let us know what you think. The all natural tears of Chios

Not consistent textures and causes nausea after 10 days of using

I have found that after using this product for almost 3 weeks that it causes my stomach to be nauseous and that there are some pieces that are very soft and stick to my teeth whereas most of the gum pieces do not… additionally the sizes vary from large pieces to those of almost a powder like consistency. I do not care for this product and will look elsewhere for such… however, I am very pleased with most of my other previous purchases from SLOfoodgroup… just not this one nor their Chipotle chili powder which seems to have its flavor tones to be more roasted than that of properly smoked.
