Caraway is an aromatic umbelliferous plant widely distributed in Europe, Asia, and North Africa. The aromatic seeds are one of the oldest spices in Europe. In traditional medicines, caraway water is used to treat indigestion and wind. Caraway extract was used to ease coughs, to clear the cold, and to treat bronchitis. Caraway seeds are also used extensively in cooking. They are used in desserts, liquors, casseroles, soups, and salads. In the Middle East, caraway pudding is a popular dessert during Ramadan.
The phenolic extract of caraway has demonstrated great free radical scavenging activities and a dose-dependent protection against DNA damage. This extract also effectively inhibited the growth of gram-positive bacteria. Caraway also has anti-inflammatory potentials with the inhibition effect of pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-6 and TNF-α.
