Chios Mastiha (PDO) Powder (1.8 oz)

Chios Mastic Growers COOP


Mastiha typically has to be ground in order to use it in cooking. Mastiha powder is already ground, so using it is easy. As a spice, it lends a beguiling undertone, a little piny and a bit incense-like, but earthy, to all manner of foods. It works just as easily as a seasoning in tomato sauce as it does in chocolate sauce, pairs deliciously with all citrus fruits, works in meat, fish and bean dishes and is a seductive addition to breads.

Recipe Ideas

Since mastiha tears must be ground to use in cooking, this mastiha powder is convenient for anyone without a mortar and pestle. Mastiha has an exotic but versatile flavor that can be used in virtually anything from desserts, breads, salads, or even pasta sauces and fish. A couple of my favorite recipes are below but the possibilities are really endless!

Great find

I bought this after seeing the recipe for mastiha pasta. We really enjoyed the recipe. I had never used mastiha powder before, but will now make sure I have it in my pantry.

Mastiha Powder

It was OK I’m sorry I didn’t buy the actual mastiha itself though, perhaps the flavor might have been stronger.

Absolutely Delicious

The Mastiha hasa fabulous flavor. I used it in Tsoureki. It gave a mild but distinct flavor i associate with the bread usually made at Easter. I make it all year long and now have my favorite spice to include.

I purchased it after seeing an episode of Diane's show where she described its flavor and aroma. I'm disappointed. It has no flavor and no aroma! On the show she had used crystals and ground them herself. This powder is already ground perhaps that's the difference. But no matter. It's a pretty useless seasoning as is.
