At Phoenix, we are always striving to fulfil the market demand and we are extremely proud to introduce our latest range – DaoDi Culinary Herbs!
A feature of TCM theory is a focus on the relationship between medicine and food. The Chinese consider the kitchen a home-based clinic and many practitioners believe that if a person’s diet is carefully managed, it can have medicinal benefits as herbal medicine focuses on a healthy lifestyle.
The products were developed and introduced to make Chinese culinary herbs more accessible, for not only practitioners, but also patients. The range includes dried fruit, mushrooms, beans and Chinese favourites. They are all packaged in convenient 50g/100g click-sealed foil bags and can be used in a variety of dishes including soups, teas, stir-fries, porridges and more.
Just like all Phoenix herbs, the range is grown using the DaoDi principle. As a unique concept used to describe authenticity within Chinese culture, there is no direct English translation. The word ‘Dao’ was originally used to describe districts in the Chinese empire, similar to the word ‘province’. The word ‘Di’ relates to soil, geography and landforms, so the concept loosely translates to geo or geo-authentic. Simply put, our herbs are grown in an authentic place, harvested at the correct time and produced using traditional methods.
Factors that contribute to DaoDi status are recognized as a combination of environmental factors (climate, soil, drainage, terrain), coupled with traditional cultivation and processing time. All these factors are implemented when processing our herbs but for this range, we developed them further.
As our new range is specifically developed to be used for culinary and nutritional purposes, we had to ensure the herbs not only do good but taste good! The herbs have been grown for guaranteed flavour, quality and authenticity to advance natural health and wellbeing. As we do with our medicinal herbs, we also embody the same quality principles with our culinary herbs.
