Nutmeg used in condiments, especially for sweet foods. The ground form of the spice is used primarily in food processing, particularly as a standard seasoning for many Dutch dishes. The preparation of meat products, soups and sauces, desserts, cakes, cookies, and seasoning meat, vegetable, etc., uses nutmeg oleoresin. The outer flesh of the fruit can be crystallized, pickled, or made into jelly. It is also used in savoury dishes. Because of its stimulant and carminative properties, mace is often used in Eastern countries as a drug. The drug can cause a withdrawal effect if taken in high doses. Toxicology uses Nutmeg oil in cosmetics and toiletries.
