The aroma of spices comes from the volatile oils that are natural constituents in fresh plant materials. Once the plant has been ground, exposed to air and irradiation, and allowed to sit around without being used, the once fragrant and tantalizing spices become irritants. However, non-irradiated spices of high quality can be savory as well as healthy. They promote better digestion and inhibit the growth of yeast and mold in the gastrointestinal tract.
