Fennel seeds contain a recommended amount of dietary fiber that can flush out toxins from the body. The same fiber content also aids in digestion and improves appetite. Fennel is an aromatic herb belonging to the parsley family.
Apart from adding flavors, it has many health benefits too. Fennel seeds freshen up bad breaths.
The seeds can be savory or sweet-coated in sugar and brightly coloured. Dry roast fennel seed, seasoned with dried rose petals and dried coconut pieces is a fantastic mouth fresher. In India, its seeds are being used as part of curry powder (Bengali panch pooran). In addition, sugarcoated fennel seeds (saunf) have been used as a Mukhwas after food to improve digestion in India.
