Inexperienced cooks are often unaware that cumin and cumin are the same spice. Therefore, they spend a lot of time and effort searching for the right prescription spice. Zira biennial herbaceous plant was nicknamed by the ancient Indians, and the inhabitants of European countries know the spicy shoots by the Latin name Cuminum. There is an alternative opinion, the essence of which is that there is still a difference in these plants. They differ only in appearance, taste and aromatic qualities are as close as possible. Modern science claims that zira and cumin are just different names for the same plant.
Application and benefits
The spice has become so firmly established in today's cooking that we can no longer imagine how insipid our dishes would be without it. In the production of almost all sausages, cheese making, confectionery and bakery, cumin is used. Its sweet smell with hints of nuts gives a special charm to pilaf, vegetable stew and sautéed bean products. Seasoning is loved for its dense, rich, but not burning aftertaste. It is distinguished by its beneficial healing properties:
- tones the body;
- fights blood clots;
- removes colic and flatulence;
- thins the blood and lowers glucose levels;
- speeds up metabolic processes.
The unique chemical composition of the spice saturates the body with the necessary trace elements and components.
