Group 016 - Stimulant, spice and aromatic crops of Central Product Classification (CPC) Version 2.1

This group includes stimulants, spices and aromatic crops, as explained below.

Stimulants are permanent trees or shrubs whose fruits or leaves are characterized by their alkaloid

Spices are plants which in one or the other of their components (rhizome, bark, fruits, berries, seeds, etc.), contain strongly flavoured and aromatic substances. For that reason they are used mainly as condiments, but have also applications for cosmetic and medicinal preparations. Most of these plants are perennial.

Aromatic crops are leaves and seeds of numerous plants with less strong flavoured substances than
spices but largely used in the kitchen. Most of these plants are spontaneous (not cultivated).
