  • Common Name : Fenugreek

Fenugreek  (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is an annual plant in the family  Fabaceae, with leaves consisting of three small obovate to oblong leaflets. It is cultivated worldwide as a semiarid crop, and its seeds are a common ingredient in dishes from the  Indian subcontinent.

Fenugreek is used as an  herb  (dried or fresh leaves),  spice  (seeds), and vegetable (fresh leaves,  sprouts, and  microgreens).  Sotolon  is the chemical responsible for fenugreek's distinctive sweet smell.  Cuboid-shaped, yellow- to amber-colored fenugreek seeds are frequently encountered in the  cuisines  of the Indian subcontinent, used both whole and powdered.

Constituents of fenugreek seeds include  flavonoids,  alkaloids,  coumarins, vitamins and  saponins; the most prevalent alkaloid is  trigonelline  and coumarins include  cinnamic acidand  scopoletin.

A  meta-analysis combining the results of 12 small studies, of which only three were high quality, found that fenugreek may reduce some  biomarkers  in people with  diabetesand with pre-diabetic conditions, but that better quality research would be required in order to draw conclusions. it is bitter to taste and increases lactation, soothes tissues which are irritated, stimulates uterus, reduces fever, blood sugar, improves digestion, improves relieving capacity and works as an expectorant, diuretic, laxative, anti-tumour and anti-parasitic effects.
