Here is our personal experience regarding local sparrow spices and cold pressed oils.
It is a well-known fact that plastic containers and plastic packaging are not only harmful for our health but for the environment as well. Still, many brands used that. Here, local sparrow has kept a thoughtful approach and used glass containers for packaging their spices and cold pressed. These glass jars look aesthetic and are a perfect eco-friendly option for packaging. We love this aspect of packaging and appreciate the brand’s gesture for saving the environment.
High in quality (superlative aroma and potent)
I am sure you all would agree that nowadays spices do not offer the typical aroma that we used to observe during our childhood days. But here again the local sparrow products distinguish themselves from other routine spices. They give a superlative aroma as soon as you open the jar. This distinct aroma shows that the brand has offered fresh and clean spices.
Black paper, red chili powder and cold pressed sesame oils all have a unique aroma.
Just like aroma, local sparrow spices and oil are great in taste too. They are flavorful and good enough to enhance the taste of your recipes at another level.
