Abstract

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L., Leguminosae, Trifoliae, Trigonellinae) is an annual plant found primarily in Mediterranean countries, the Middle East, and India. The seeds are most often used as a food spice (curry) and in traditional medicine. Fenugreek seeds are assumed to have restorative and nutritive properties (appetite stimulant) and hypocholesterolemic and antidiabetic effects.
