Cumin is a leafy plant that grows low to the ground in China, India, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean region. The fruit of the plant is called the cumin seed, and it’s popular all over the world as a spice. Whole cumin seeds have a bright, earthy, slightly spicy flavour that may remind you a little bit of dried lemon peel when they’re added to rich ingredients like yogurt or meat. Whole cumin, for example, is featured in Indian dishes, where the whole seeds are added to hot oil at the start of the dish, so the flavour infuses the oil and therefore the rest of the ingredients. More flavour is brought out when the seed is lightly roasted, which is done easily using a dry pan over medium heat. As well as adding flavour to food, Cumin has become the subject of medical research, as anecdotal evidence claims it has all kinds of health benefits.

As well as adding flavour to food, Cumin is associated with many health benefits including antimicrobial, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It has been found to inhibit bacterial growth through its powerful antimicrobial effects, as well as having an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Cumin seeds are known to stimulate our salivary glands, enzymes and bile, which aid the digestion of food. Cumin also has a carminative effect thus they help to relieve gas in the stomach and intestines (flatulence) and therefore could be of benefit to our digestive system as part of a healthy diet. Some studies have shown that cumin may counteract stress and improve memory.
