Cumin

Ceylon Groceries

Cumin seeds are harvested by hand from an annual plant; they are small, boat-shaped, and resemble caraway seeds. The most common variety of cumin is a brownish-yellow color, although you can also sometimes find black cumin, green cumin, and white cumin. 

Cumin is also high in iron and contains plant compounds that are antioxidants.  It may improve cholesterol levels, promote weight loss, and help prevent diabetes.
