Background and Use

Fenugreek originates from India and Northern Africa, where it has a long-history of medicinal and culinary use. Medicinal applications of Fenugreek were documented in ancient Egypt, where it was used in for embalming mummies.

As an aid to increasing milk flow, Fenugreek has been historically valued across many cultures and eras, from the relatively recent use by the wet nurses in the southern United States to other cultures such as Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, and Argentina. In India, once the child has been born, women are encouraged to eat Fenugreek seeds as a food to encourage the healthy flow of milk.
