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.
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.

Product looks, smells, tastes like what most describe. Have been taking 1/2 tsp twice daily for 8 days and just starting to detect the change in body odor. Have tried it toasted and non toasted...both forms ground in coffee grinder. Coffee grinder provides finer powder from toasted seed. Prefer tea made with either hot lemonade or apple juice, to offset bitterness. Product is well packaged and the price is right.

Still not sure how to use these for best benefits for digestion but its best to presoak them before adding to smoothies. Have a bit of a strange taste to me.
Very old. Very dry.

Very old, very dry. Way too old for use for sprouts. Dead.
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.
