Cumin, the spice power!

Cumin, small and boat shaped seeds are sweet-smelling spice with a robust and aromatic flavour profile due to its plentiful oil content.

‘The greater the oil content, the more flavourful is the cumin’.

The history of Cumin goes back a long time. The ancient Egyptians used it for culinary as well as mummification process. Greeks and Romans used it for medicinal purposes. Cumin also has a reference in the bible for its powerful health benefits.

Native to the Mediterranean region, Cumin is also cultivated in India, China and Mexico. Cumin plays a very important part in Ayurvedic and herbal medicinal traditions. It is rich in iron and helps to arouse the secretion of enzymes from the pancreas which helps to absorb nutrients into the human system. It has also proven to increase liver’s ability to detoxify the human body.

Cumin is very effective at reducing blood glucose and is also known as anti-diabetic drug. This potent spice is rich in bio-active compound called Thymoquinone, which is known for analgesic (relieve pain), anti-cancer, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic (reduce fever) properties.

You can use this flavourful spice with all sorts of cuisines. Add it to your cheese, dips, bread, beans & legumes, meats, sauces or simple rice. If in rush, have it in just shot of water or juice.

To conclude, this powerful spice has evidence-based health benefits since ancient times. Using Cumin regularly can boost your immune system & help fight and prevent various ailments.
