Celery seeds come from the flowers of Apium graveolens, a common vegetable in the parsley family. The seeds have been used for seasoning and pickling spice for centuries.

Like other leafy greens, the entire plant is abundant in the antioxidant lutein and the seeds contain high levels of coumarin and an omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid.
