Dear JK
I must admit that I am not aware of these spices having dramatic nutritional properties. Cayenne pepper may contain some vit C and Cinnamon has been mentioned in relation to the control of blood sugar, but the research is still in its early stages, so there is no convincing evidence yet. Because spices are eaten in small quantities, they also do not contribute to your kJ intake.
