Good to know
Those who smell cumin will automatically be taken into an exotic world and think of foreign food, as it is not very popular in Europe. But this should change as soon as possible, as it enriches many dishes and is really super healthy. In Africa, a mixture of salt and cumin is still used as a table spice. It is used in many kitchens around the world and is also part of many spice blends. Especially those who love Mexican food can't get past cumin, as it is one of the main ingredients of the local cuisine besides chilli. India is by far the largest producer of cumin and 70-80% are consumed in the country itself. A quota stipulates that it may not be exported until the demand in India is met.
Add whole or ground to the dishes. Especially food on a liquid basis, which cooks for a long time tolerates cumin very well and the, for some people, special taste evaporates over time. A touch of cumin to the dishes often gives them something special – just try it out.
Full taste development
Crush seeds in the mortar and roast dry to get a nutty, mild scent.
After roasting, pour over hot oil (80°C) and you have a wonderful seasoning oil. A mixture of cumin and chilli powder in equal parts results in a wonderful and versatile spice mixture.
The antioxidant against diabetes
Blood & Heart
Protects against diabetes: Cumin has been successfully used in several studies to treat diabetes and thus also prevents all typical follow-up diseases of diabetes, such as heart disease, stroke, blindness and kidney disease.
Along with black pepper and cinnamon, cumin can stop the formation of AGE (advanced glycation endproducts) by up to 90%. With an increased blood sugar level, AGEs can accumulate in the body and thereby cause vascular damage.
Joints & Bones
Strengthens the bones: About 5 million people in Germany suffer from osteoporosis, which thins out the bones, so to speak. Cumin can help counteract bone loss, study says.
