ORGANIC AJWAIN SEED, whole
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Trachyspermum ammi
Qualities: Ajwain seed oil has the highest percentage of thymol which has shown to have local anesthetic, antibacterial and antifungal properties. In Ayurvedic practice, ajwain seeds are sometimes recommended as a carminative in treating flatulence and indigestion.
Common Use: This flavorful, strongly pungent seed (or fruit pod) is popularly featured in Indian, African, and Middle-Eastern cuisine. Its flavor closely resembles that of thyme due to the predominant essential oil thymol. In order to keep fragrance and flavor intact, the seeds are usually ground just before preparing dishes and added to the cooking recipes at the final stages.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place in an airtight container.

Organic Matters is a terrific resource e in Canada for quality products not easily found in local grocers or ethnic food shops. I purchased a bulk bag of Rose Petals, Hibiscus Flower, and Ajwain. All of these are used in specialty dishes and common ingredients in Ayurvedic cooking for their healing properties. They aid in digestion, calming and enhancing the gut. Rose petals are a wonderful light sweetener as are the hibiscus which bring a lovely aroma, colour and taste to teas, sauces and even added to rice and other grains or custards.
