Fennel is a popular culinary and medicinal herb. It is often used to support digestive function.

But did you know…

  1. The fresh stems of fennel can be eaten like celery, and both the bulb and the seeds have a mild, licorice-like flavor. This flavor profile is due to the compound anethole, found in fennel and other plants, such as anise, it is a monoterpene that is 13 times sweeter than table sugar.
  2. Fennel leaf, bulb, seeds (the fruit), stalk, and even the pollen are edible and medicinal. The pollen is a very powerful spice with a licorice and citrus flavor. It is not the same as fennel powder made by grounding the seeds.
  3. Fennel seeds help regulate fluid retention in the body. They flush out excess water helping to remove toxins from the body and reducing the risk of catching a urinary tract infection.
  4. Fennel helps promote lactation.
