For centuries, fenugreek has been used across the globe to add flavor to food, produce, tea and spice blends, and – most importantly – promote wellness and healthy milk production for nursing mothers.*
If you are getting to know fenugreek a little better, it is an annual herb that is native to South Asia and the Mediterranean. The fenugreek plant has small round leaves, pale flowers and pods that each contain between 10 and 20 seeds. Both the seeds and the leaves of the fenugreek plant have been used in cooking and traditional medicine for centuries.
India is the largest producer of fenugreek, but other key contributors to the global fenugreek trade are Afghanistan, Nepal, Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey and Morocco.
The Flavors of Fenugreek
Fenugreek has a nutty flavor that is equal parts bitter and sweet, and both the seeds and the leaves of the plant have a pungent aroma. Ground seeds are commonly used in Indian, North African, and Middle Eastern cuisines, especially to prepare curry powders, dry rubs, spice blends and teas.
Dried leaves can be sprinkled into soups and sauces or mixed into dough to add flavor to bread, and fresh leaves can be added to salads and other dishes. A little bit goes a long way when it comes to fenugreek; add too much of this flavorful herb, and it can easily overpower the dish.
Fenugreek and Women’s Health
Fenugreek has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, and today is nature’s most popular herb for supporting healthy breast milk production.* Ancient healers in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe frequently turned to this herb to promote wellness and healthy milk production in new mothers.*
Many modern folk healers are continuing the tradition today. Some early studies have indicated that drinking fenugreek tea may increase milk production, and many nursing mothers begin taking supplements or drinking tea shortly after giving birth.*
As with any herb, we recommend speaking with your doctor to discuss how much you should drink to get the desired benefits.
