1. Product description The nutmeg tree (Myristica fragrans Houtt.) is endemic to Indonesia and other countries in the South Pacific. However, it is also grown commercially on several Caribbean islands, in India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. Other species include Myristica argentea (Papua) and Myristica malabarica (India), both used as adulterants in trade. The nutmeg tree bears fruits containing egg-shaped seeds wrapped in a red cover (aril) all year round. The red cover is mace, which is another spice with a similar, but slightly more delicate flavour. Mace and its extract (oleoresin) are not dealt with in this study, which focuses on the above-mentioned egg-shaped seed (nutmeg) in whole, broken or ground form. The statistical data in this document are based on Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes of the European Union. The CN is based on the international Harmonised System (HS) codes for classifying products. The relevant CN codes for nutmeg are shown in the following table. CN Code Description 09081100 Nutmeg, neither crushed nor ground 09081200 Nutmeg, crushed or ground Product specification Quality Product quality is a key issue for buyers in Europe and also includes food safety issues. The European Spice Association (ESA) has published the Quality Minima Document, which is vital for the national spice associations affiliated with the ESA and therefore for most key players in Europe. It specifies the legal European requirements as well as the terms of delivery between buyer and seller that are not defined in legislation. It contains the chemical and physical parameters that determine the minimum quality requirements for nutmeg: Ash (max) Acid insol. ash (max.) Moisture (max.) Volatile oil (min.) 3.0% 0.5% 10% 5-6.5 ml/100gr (depending on grade) High-quality nutmeg should be oil-rich, whole, unbroken and without stalks, and must not contain any woody, brittle nutmeg. It should be reddish-brown to brown in colour and the head should be light brown and closed. Nutmeg is graded in accordance with the relevant national standard of the country of production. In addition, ISO standard 6577-2002 provides some general guidelines on the grading, handling and packing of whole and ground nutmeg. Labelling Incorrect labelling is a major source of frustration for European buyers. You should therefore take care to label your product properly. See our study on European market for value-added spices and herbs for information on consumer packaging requirements. Bulk products should include the following information on the product packaging or the accompanying commercial documents: The name of the product Details of the manufacturer (name and address) Batch number Date of manufacture Product grade Producing country Harvest date (month-year) Net weight Any information that exporting and importing countries may require: bar code, producer and/or packager code, any extra information that can be used to trace the product back to its origin. Packaging Nutmeg is usually packed in new, clean, durable, and dry bags of jute, cloth laminated with polyethylene or polypropylene, or high-density polyethylene bags or pouches. Crushed or ground nutmeg can be packed in new, clean, durable, and dry containers made of tin, glass or in pouches made of laminated, extruded, metallised multi-layer food-grade plastic. The containers should be free from insect infestation, fungus contamination, undesirable or bad odour, and substances that may damage the contents.
Nutmeg is the seed or ground spice of several species of the genus Myristica. Myristica fragrans is a dark-leaved evergreen tree cultivated for two spices derived from its fruit: nutmeg, from its seed and mace, from the seed covering. It is a commercial source of an essential oil and nutmeg butter
