nutmeg

Nutmeg is the seed or ground spice of several species of the genus Myristica. Myristica fragrans (fragrant nutmeg or true nutmeg) 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 also a commercial source of an essential oil and nutmeg butter. The California nutmeg, Torreya californica, has a seed of similar appearance, but is not closely related to Myristica fragans, and is not used as a spice. If consumed in amounts exceeding its typical use as a spice, nutmeg powder may produce allergic reactions, cause contact dermatitis, or have psychoactive effects. Although used in traditional medicine for treating various disorders, nutmeg has no known medicinal value.

    Nutmeg

    Nutmeg and its toxic effects

    Mod Edit: Posts moved from another thread to start new topic. I'm not allergic to it. I absolutely love it, but I often used to overdo it on rice pudding and it is an hallucinogenic. It is also fatally toxic to cats and dogs. I sometimes use cinnamon instead, and, to be on the safe side, I...
