Caraway, also known as "meadow cumin", is a plant of the Apiaceae family and has been consumed since Neolithic times.


Caraway seeds are used in herbal medicine and have a tropism for the digestive system. These seeds contain flavonoids, furanocoumarins and an essence rich in carvone, a molecule with antispasmodic and liver detoxifying properties.


Caraway is a so-called carminative plant, facilitating the expulsion of gas. Its use is therefore recommended in cases of bloating and flatulence. In addition, the seeds have antispasmodic and aperitive effects, i.e. they facilitate the secretions of the digestive system. In addition to the antispasmodic effects mentioned above, caraway seeds have an aperitive effect, i.e. they facilitate the secretion of the digestive system and stimulate the appetite.


This plant can also be used in food and its seeds consumed at the end of a meal to facilitate digestion.
