  • Good to know

    Fenugreek is a legume and the flowers are reminiscent of pea pods. In each flower there are 10-20 seeds, which are separated by threshing and then dried and sorted. It is also an ingredient of the popular curry powders. An alternative name for fenugreek is "Greek hay" as it was used to be used (and still today) as animal feed.

  • Usage

    Can be consumed as whole seeds or ground; ATTENTION: Ground, the aroma evaporates quickly, therefore consume quickly! Alternatively, some fenugreek seeds can be poured with hot water. Let the liquid draw for a few minutes and enjoy the drink hot or cold. This process can be repeated several times and the seeds soaked in this way can then be used, for example, in a salad.

    WARNING: Pregnant women should not consume fenugreek as it contains saponin which can lead to abortion or miscarriage!!

    ALLERGIES: People who are allergic to legumes, such as soybeans, peanuts, green peas, etc., may also be allergic to fenugreek.

  • Full taste development

    Roast slightly beforehand to reduce bitter notes and intensify the aroma; soak in water overnight or brew with hot water and swell for 15 minutes to make it easier to grind.

  • Tipp

    Ground also suitable to thicken sauces.

  • Health aspects

    Fenugreek is the superweapon against diabetes



    Blood & Heart

    Fight against diabetes - How does it work? Fenugreek seems to slow down the absorption of sugar in the stomach and stimulate insulin. Both effects lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. It also lowers the "bad" level of LDL cholesterol and increases "good" HDL cholesterol levels. Studies have shown that, in order to achieve an effect, one should regularly consume at least 5g/day.

    ATTENTION: Since fenugreek can affect blood sugar levels, people with diabetes should consult their doctor before excessive use, if necessary, to adjust the dosage of their diabetes medication. Consequences could be too low blood sugar levels. Fenugreek could also slow blood clotting and increase the chances of bruising and bleeding when taken together with warfarin (coumadin).



    Beauty & Well-being

    The pounds are shedding faster – fenugreek supports weight loss: fenugreek strengthens the feeling of satiety and can thus have a supportive effect on a diet. Simply add approx. 1 tsp fenugreek powder, e.g. in orange juice, and eat for breakfast; accordingly, the reference can be dispensed with at lunch.

    Fenugreek is considered an aphrodisiac in some parts of the world and nursing women sometimes use it to promote milk flow.


    Abdominal area

    Prevention of gallstones: Regular use of fenugreek can prevent gallstones, shrink them and prevent recurrence.

    For good digestion: Indigestion such as diarrhoea or constipation can be alleviated by taking fenugreek. For this purpose, the seeds are soaked in water until they swell and can then be e.g. mixed in a salad.

    Relieves menstrual problems (dysmenorrhea): Taking half a tsp (2-3g) fenugreek three times a day for the first 3 days of menstruation followed by a few seeds (about 1g) three times a day for the rest of two menstrual cycles reduces pain in women with painful menstrual periods. Thus, the need for painkillers can be reduced.
