There is evidence that fenugreek has been cultivated in Western Asia as long ago as 4000 BC. Although the plant was widely grown as a foraging crop for grazing animals, fenugreek seeds were among the items recovered from the burial tomb of Tutankhamun, better known as King Tut.

Powdered, the seed is used as a spice to season. It is also combined with water to make a paste for use as a polstice.

fenugreek seed

Also known as goat’s horn, bird's foot and Greek clover, fenugreek is a popular culinary spice in the cuisines of the Mediterranean and Indian subcontinent. Although the herb is thought to have been first cultivated during the Bronze Age in what is now known as Iraq, fenugreek is commercially grown in many Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian countries today, most notably India, Egypt, Morocco, Spain, Afghanistan and Iran.

The bittersweet flavor and maple-like aroma of fenugreek seed is due to the presence of sotolone, which is also found in authentic maple syrup. Another component of fenugreek is 4-hydroxyisoleucine, an amino acid involved in regulating glucose metabolism.
