Cumin has been in use since ancient times, from Ancient Syria to Ancient Egypt, but it seems to have first been cultivated in the Persian and Mediterranean regions. Cumin seeds are used as a spice for their distinctive flavor and aroma. It is globally popular and an essential flavoring in many cuisines, particularly South Asian, Northern African and Latin American cuisines. Cumin can be found in some cheeses, such as Leyden cheese, and in some traditional breads from France. Aside from imparting a warm, earthy flavor, chemical compounds in cumin seed are carminative. The seeds may be chewed whole, or steeped into a tea. As a culinary flavoring, the seeds may be added to soups, stews and other foods whole or as a ground powder.
