Fennel has a very rich history to it and derives its name from the Latin word Feniculum, which means "hay". It has a distinct anise-character that comes from the component anethole, the same aromatic compound found in (star) anise. However, the flavor in fennel is much more subtle and less pungent.

The seeds are best when they are green and have a wide variety of culinary uses. From India to the modern kitchens and even found as an ingredient in toothpaste. Our fennel seeds come directly from a seed producer in Holland who only works through plant breeding and certainly not with GMO techniques.
