Cumin Seeds - 1 teaspoon whole is 2 grams and 7 calories.

Cumin seeds have a nutty, peppery flavor, oblong in shape, ridged and yellow-brown in color.

Flavorful seasoning for curry, vegetables, chicken, fish, tea, lentils, rice, breads, stews and eggs.

Whole seeds stay fresh for about a year in a cool, dry place.

A very good source of iron and a good source of manganese.

Lightly roasting the seeds brings out the flavor and aroma before using in a recipe.
