Fenugreek has long been used in Ayurvedic and traditional eastern medicine and makes up the bulk of the curry spice. It was used as an expectorant, digestive and antiviral. Fenugreek microgreens reportedly help against menstrual and menopausal problems and are useful in breast health in women. It also helps as a cleaner purifier of the kidneys and liver.
We included fenugreek in our catalogue due to its unique, tart and slightly bitter taste, reminiscent of curry, which you will notice in a good way! Use Fenugreek Microgreens as a special addition to salads, a garnish, or Asian or Indian cuisine; however, please avoid during pregnancy.
