Celery seeds have a mildly spicy and slilghtly bitter taste with aroma and flavor notes similar to fennel. Whole seeds are added to pickling brines, soups and breads. Although it takes more than half a million seeds to equal a pound, the flavor in just a handful of seeds goes a long way in cooking.

For such tiny fruits, celery seeds pack a punch in more ways than one. First, the seeds are a rich source of antioxidant flavonoids and an omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid. The seeds also provide lutein, a type of carotenoid that has received a great deal of attention in recent years for its potential role in helping to prevent macular degeneration.

Caution is advised, however, for individuals who take certain pharmaceutical medications. Celery seed contains bergapten, an organic chemical compound composed of a five-membered aromatic ring of furan fused with coumarin. This means that large doses of the seed might increase the effects of anticoagulants and antiplatelets, such as warfarin (Coumadin). This compound also known to increase photosensitivity.
