Caraway Whole Dried Seeds

From: 5.80 


Latin Name: Carum Carvi

Origin Country: Egypt

These super seeds are a gourmet spice used all over the world for their distinctive aromatic flavour and health benefits.

Caraway seed aroma is just a little bitter than cumin seeds, a very popular spice in India.

The constituents that give caraway its distinct flavour and taste are ‘carvones’ and ‘caveols’. These compounds are responsible for giving the spice its antioxidant, digestive, carminative, and anti-flatulent properties.

Caraway contains several essential oils and several flavonoid antioxidants such as lutein, carotene, crypto-xanthin andzea-xanthin. These remove harmful free radicals from our bodies.

The caraway spice is also an excellent source of minerals like iron, copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, selenium, zinc and magnesium.

The seeds also contain many vital vitamins like A, E, C as well as a number of B-complex vitamins.

You can use the seeds in recipes, but also you can make an infusion or a tea with them.
According to experts, caraway is safe if taken in small amounts. You can use it safely for up to 8 weeks. Pregnant women should use caraway sparingly as it can cause a miscarriage. As caraway can lower blood sugar, a diabetic should not use caraway, without watching his or her blood sugar. If you are going in for surgery, stop using caraway at least two days in advance as it might interfere with the blood sugar control during and after surgery.
