Description

Bay leaves are aromatic leaves commonly used in cooking to add a distinct flavor and fragrance to various dishes. They come from the bay laurel tree (Laurus nobilis) and are typically used in soups, stews, sauces, and marinades. Bay leaves are known for their slightly bitter, herbal taste and are usually removed from the dish before serving due to their tough texture. Both fresh and dried bay leaves are used in culinary applications, with dried leaves being more commonly available. Nutritional Facts (per 1 gram): (Note: Nutritional values are based on dried bay leaves. The values are minimal as bay leaves are used in small quantities.)
