Nigella Seeds (250g)
The Nigella seed (also known by the names black cumin seed, black coriander, black seeds or kalonji) is a popular medicinal herb that has been described as being able to ‘cure everything other then death’. A powerful little seed with a delicious peppery flavour, nigella is full of nutrients and said to support with a long list of ailments including high blood pressure, asthma, sore throats, morphine addiction, psoriasis and cervical cancer to name a just a few.
With its elegant shape and jet black colouring, nigella is a popular decorative spice for tossing onto savoury biscuits, pastries, quiches or homemade breads (such as naan or turkish – though really you can sprinkle it onto any bread).
Our favourites: for added colour and flavour, sprinkle on top of a delicious leafy green salad, or on top of a smashed avocado breakfast. (Nigella is super yummy with avocado).
For guaranteed freshness, nigella seeds are best stored in an airtight container, away from any moisture.

There is perhaps not enough space here to share the long list of health benefits attributed to the Nigella seed. Suffice to say that it contains many essential amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, fixed oils, volatile oils, alkaloids, saponin and fibre. The seed also contains the minerals calcium, iron, potassium, and sodium. It is suggested that to take nigella medicinally one must use the oil and not just the seed alone.
