Cumin (/ˈkjuːmɪn/ or US: /ˈkuːmɪn/, or /ˈkʌmɪn/) (Cuminum cyminum) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to the Irano-Turanian Region. Its seeds – each one contained within a fruit, which is dried – are used in the cuisines of many cultures in both whole and ground form.

The name cumin refers to a small seed from the parsley family of plants. Cumin has been used since ancient times as a spice and food preservative. Cumin seeds are the dried fruits of one species of the Cuminum cyminum plant. Cumin seeds are usually dried and ground, or applied whole with other spices to add an intense earthy and warming flavour to foods.

Cumin seeds that are native to regions of Asia, such as India and China, have been long known for its incredible health benefits. They’re a good source of essential minerals like iron, manganese, magnesium and calcium.


Cumin seeds are also a rich source of vitamin C and E, as well as some B vitamins like thiamine and riboflavin, which can contribute to your daily nutrient needs. Organic cumin seeds are sourced from high quality plants, have a lovely nutty aroma, and carry an intense pungent earthy flavour.
