What is fenugreek good for?
Fenugreek is a relatively unknown herb in our cuisine, but it has been used for thousands of years in Asian cuisine. Fenugreek is sometimes called “Greek hay”, which comes from the Latin name with the same meaning. The Latin name for fenugreek is Trigonella foenum-graecum and it is an herb that grows wild in the Mediterranean climate but is grown worldwide.
From excavations in Iraq, it has been found that fenugreek was used as early as 4000 BC. Traditionally, it was used on the skin as dressing for various conditions. Fenugreek has also been used for the stomach. The herb is rich in fibres, which contributes to normal bowel function.
