Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is commonly known as black caraway. The oil extracted through cold-pressing from its seeds has a distinctive flavour and scent. Moreover, black cumin oil is high in unsaturated fat, including polyunsaturated fat which includes omega-6 fatty acids. One of omega-6 fatty acids is linoleic acid (LA) which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 10 g of LA. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats in the diet contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels [MUFA and PUFA are unsaturated fats]. Maintaining normal health requires a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Do not use cold-pressed black cumin oil to heat up or fry food.
