We provide high quality Ethiopia fenugreek to the local and export market. We source the raw fresh Ethiopia fenugreek from family growers from Ethiopia.
Ethiopia fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), also know as Abish in Amharic, refers to a yearly spicy plant whose seeds alongside leaves spice dishes and soups. It enjoys widespread cultivation in hot climates like India as well as the arid parts of Ethiopia. The culinary use of the crop owes to the high concentration of a nutrient known as Sotolon, which just like capsicain in pepper, lends a remarkable sweet odor to the seeds and leaves. Both seeds and the leaves commonly serve as ingredients for spicing vegetable soups and can also feature as whole vegetables for stew. The first time the crop was domesticated may have been in Mesopotamia or today’s northern Middle-east on unknown dates. The first cultivated seeds may have thrived in Iraq as early as 4000 B.C.
Each serving of fenugreek comes with at least 6 grams of fat, most of which is unsaturated and thus good for heart health. The iron content is as high as 186 percent of the daily value for improved oxygen transportation in blood. Dietary fiber for ensuring good digestion comes at 100 percent of the daily needs. Though the immunity vitamin, C has a low daily value of 5 percent, it is supplemented by vitamin B-6 at 30 percent. Each serving provides energy levels of at least 323 calories.
We source Ethiopia fenugreek from the Shewa region, and the eastern dry parts of the country. Family growers cultivate it for subsistence and export purposes. Subsistence aims including cooking the local injera stew and improving the clarity of butter and adding aroma to bread. Our sources follow strict organic cultivation methods that spare on pesticides and maximize on the use of farmpost manure.
We harvest fenugreek from Ethiopia by adhering to a phytosanitary process. Our farmhands usually wear gloves when snapping each stalk consisting of multiple seed-bearing pods. We only cut off the pods from the base of the stem to ensure that no losses take place. Each of our workers takes maximum care to reduce breakage of the feathery pods that may spill seeds when they are mishandled.
The next post-harvest process involves the extraction of the strikingly golden yellow seeds from the pod covers. Our responsible farmhands usually rub the pods in their gloved hands and then remove the easy-to-come-off seeds of Ethiopia fenugreek. There are always polyerythene lined bags handy for immediate storage of the seeds away from direct heat.
We pack the dried Ethiopia fenugreek seeds in custom glass jars, plastic jars and aluminum foil covered jute bags, depending on the size of the package. Our packages start at 50 kilograms though this can go higher or lower depending on your request. At times of high demand, we also feature other eco-friendly packaging materials including poly bags that can store the produce under cool dry conditions for over half a year unspoiled.
We transport the fenugreek seeds through custom trucks with refrigerated interior to conserve the base moisture that has been lessened to optimum levels. We immediately deliver the shipment to the Bola International Airport on the same day of the harvest.
