Cumin is one of the oldest plants known to men. It was used as a spice by many civilizations, including Celts and ancient Romans. Today, cumin is cultivated in France, India, Turkey, North Africa, Brazil, and Egypt.

Cumin seeds are valued primarily because of cumin essential oil, which contains up to 70% of carvone. In addition, they also contain up to 22% of fatty oils, proteins, pigments, resins, tannins, and other useful substances.

Cumin seeds contain a large number of nutrients, including pyridoxine, riboflavin, thiamin, tocopherol, β-carotene, ascorbic acid, and phylloquinone. They are also rich in calcium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus. All of these components are necessary to ensure the normal functioning of the body.

Cumin seeds are a very healthy spice. They help the body assimilate fats and improve the function of the gallbladder. The distinctive taste of these seeds can be combined with almost any dish as they do not overpower any taste. Cumin seeds can be eaten dried or fresh.

Cumin Seeds Health Benefits

  • Excellent antiseptic properties
    A pinch of cumin seeds helps cure food poisoning by causing the fermentation processes in the digestive tract. They fully eliminate harmful bacteria in drinking water, so it is recommended to put 2-3 teaspoons of the seeds into previously unfiltered water that you are intending to drink.
  • Expectorant action
    Tea made from cumin seeds helps remove excess mucus and therefore, it is recommended for allergies. It is also recommended to drink tea with these seeds when the first symptoms of colds appear.
  • Normalization of the digestive system
    In combination with turmeric and pepper, cumin seeds help the normal operation of the digestive system. By taking them after a meal, you can reduce abdominal pain.
  • Improvement of appetite
    If you have little to no appetite, add some cumin seeds to your food. Your appetite will improve right away.
  • Antispasmodic properties
    Cumin seeds help relieve symptoms of bronchitis, pneumonia, and even tuberculosis. They help remove phlegm from the respiratory organs and relieve bronchopneumonia.

How to Sprout Cumin Seeds at Home

  1. Yields approximately 3 Cups (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts. Prep 3 Tablespoons of seed, then transfer into a bowl or into your Sprouter. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all.
  2. Allow seeds to soak for 6-12 hours. Empty the seeds into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. Rinse thoroughly with cool (60°-70°) water. Drain thoroughly! Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. Ensure sufficient air-circulation is provided.
  3. Always be sure to Drain very thoroughly. The most common cause of inferior sprouts is inadequate drainage. Rinse and Drain again every 8-12 hours for 3 days.

Enjoy your home-made sprouts!

Fresh, clean and great quality cumin seeds. All of the Food to Live products I have used are always clean and of great quality. Very happy with the cumin seeds. They are pricey but you are paying for quality.
from AAxis
Great product. Very fresh and delicious
The quality of Food to Live products is very good. I use Cumin in cooking but most often in an herbal tea concoction which is great.
from ED
Worth the money. Great quality and taste
Clean and fresh! I used to buy cumin seeds for cooking from south asian stores but I found that you had to wash the cumin before you were able to use it. The Food to Live cumin is very clean and fresh - no need for the extra wash!
