These seeds like other dried seeds may germinate under proper conditions. However, herb and spice seeds sold by Frontier are not intended for sprouting purposes and in many cases will not germinate.
Fenugreek seeds are rich in protein and in some cultures both the leaves and seeds are consumed as a food. As a seasoning, the seeds are used whole or ground in a variety of ethnic cuisines.
Fenugreek provides tang to Indian and Thai curry blends and other spice mixtures, chutneys and Middle Eastern halva. In several African countries and in Egypt, the seeds are roasted to produce a hot, coffee-like beverage. Egyptians also grind and mix the seeds with wheat flour to make bread. Fenugreek leaves are served as a vegetable in India. In the United States, fenugreek is used as a flavoring in beverages, candies and desserts, meat dishes, pickles, baked goods and puddings. Fenugreek and mint make a lovely tea blend. Extracts from the seeds are used for flavoring syrups and sauces (like artificial maple flavoring and imitation maple syrup) and pipe tobaccos. Use fenugreek sparingly; too much can make a dish bitter.
iHerb Customer Reviews
Very good product! Not only useful as a seasoning, but as a treatment!For women's health Fenugreek is a really great thing! Commonly known as a breastfeeding helper (increases milk supply), also good in treating PMS and menopause. Helps to reduce stomach ache, increases appetite, helps to recover from illness or weakness. This one is fresh, good quality for a really low price!
I sprout them and use them in my green smoothies from time to time. This is one of super-foods, rich in vitamins and minerals. Keep feeding me, iherb, with this more and more. Thanks.
Bitter but tasty

I sprout these seeds and add to my curries or savory crepes. They taste a bit bitter but enhance the flavor of the dish. I love this company and buy a lot of their stuff. As ususal delivery was quick.

I use it as tea, just lightly crush half a teaspoon of seeds and pour boiling water over it, and let it sit for 3 minutes. It's a nice light golden color with a great nutty smell and taste and no bitterness at all. I've tried it in salads but you probably have to soak it first and it would still have the bitterness and it hurt my gums too so I'll stick to the tea until I find other ways to use it
