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 bought this because a recipe for sauerkraut called for it. I haven't tasted the sauerkraut yet because it is still fermenting. I did make a tea which reminds me of maple syrup. I have read it is good for digestive problems, but didn't make the tea for that.

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.
