Exploring 2024’s Trending Flavors and the Art of Outsourcing Custom Blends

As we move into 2024, the spice trends are leaning towards global flavors, complex heat, and smoked spices. This year, we’re seeing a surge in popularity for spices that offer a balance of health benefits and bold flavors.

Turmeric continues to be a favorite for its anti-inflammatory properties and is often used in dishes like curries, golden milk, and turmeric rice. At Majestic Spice, we offer high-quality turmeric powder that can be used to add flavor and health benefits to a variety of dishes​​​​.

Smoked paprika is becoming popular for its deep, smoky aroma, commonly found in dishes such as Spanish paella, Hungarian goulash, and as a seasoning for grilled meats and vegetables. Majestic Spice’s unique smoking process stands out, particularly with our signature smoked paprika. While not all spices undergo smoking, our oak wood-fired smoking process for ripe red peppers ensures a depth and aroma that elevates any dish. This meticulous technique not only adds a distinctive flavor but also complements the current trend for complex, smoky spices, providing an experience that goes beyond the ordinary.

Za’atar, a versatile Middle Eastern blend, is gaining popularity for its unique flavor and is used to season flatbreads, roasted vegetables, and yogurt dips. While we may not have a specific za’atar blend, our range of herbs and spices can help you create your own custom blend to match this trend.

In addition, Tamarind, McCormick’s Flavor of the Year, is emerging as a notable ingredient, known for its tangy sweetness and health-promoting properties. It’s being used in various cuisines for both savory and sweet dishes, such as Indian chutneys, Thai tamarind fish, and even in desserts like tamarind sorbet or as a flavor enhancer in cocktails.

International Cuisines & Spice Blends

As consumers increasingly seek to explore international cuisines through their food, the popularity of spice blends from around the world, such as Indian Garam Masala, Japanese/Korean American Fusion seasonings, and Middle Eastern flavors like Harissa, is on the rise. 

This global culinary curiosity aligns perfectly with the growing trend of outsourcing custom blends, which allows for the creation of unique flavors tailored to specific culinary needs.
