Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a plant in the family Fabaceae. Fenugreek is used both as an herb (the leaves) and as a spice (the seed). It is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop. It is frequently used in curry. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details. Source: Wikipedia, Wikipedia

Native to western Asia and south-eastern Europe, this aromatic legume plant is well known almost worldwide for its pleasantly bitter, slightly sweet seeds, sometimes described as having a suggestion of burnt sugar. Fenugreek grows today in many parts of the world, including India, northern Africa and the United States.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that fenugreek may induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals; however, few studies have been reported to date. Reactions may follow ingestion, inhalation or external application of fenugreek seed powder. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
