  • What is fenugreek?

    Fenugreek is an aromatic herbaceous plant of the Fabaceae family. It is also found under the name trigonella fenugreek or senegrine.

    An annual plant that can reach up to 60 cm in height, it is distinguished by its oval leaves with three leaflets. The flowers of fenugreek are pale yellow. They produce pods 7 to 8 cm long.

    A condiment plant, fenugreek is used in the composition of curries and ras-el-hanout. Its seeds and leaves are eaten.

    It is rich in vitamin A, B1, C and contains magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sulphur and up to 30% protein. It has a characteristic odour close to that of celery, which is found in Maggi broth or Viandox.
