Cumin seeds play an important role in our daily coking and have numerous medicinal properties and have been a cultural symbol with varied attributes. It is the second most popular spice in the world and used as a spice for its distinctive aroma, popular in Indian, Pakistani, North African, Middle Eastern, Sri Lankan, Cuban, northern Mexican cuisines, central Asian Uzbek cuisine, and the western Chinese cuisines of Sichuan.

It is commonly used in traditional Brazilian cuisine. Cumin was also used heavily in ancient Roman cuisine. It helps to add an earthy and warming feeling to cooking, making it a staple in certain stews and soups, as well as curries and chilli. People in parts of South Asia commonly believe cumin seeds help with digestion.

Cumin seeds are a very good source of iron and a good source of manganese. Cumin's distinctive flavour and strong, warm aroma is due to its essential oil content. Cumin is extremely good for digestion and related problems. It is also a Carminative i.e. relieves from you from gas troubles and thereby improves digestion and appetite.
