Tips on buying quality fenugreek seeds

Our recommendation is to to buy as fresh whenever possible, and also whole. Powdered fenugreek is easily diluted, as lesser varieties of fenugreek can be used, or in the worst case, other leaves that have no flavour whatsoever! Good quality fenugreek seeds have a great shine, and smell like sweet maple syrup. In case you’re unsure, please refer to our quality and grade standards here when buying good quality whole fenugreek seeds.
