Virgin organic black cumin seed oil

Black cumin seeds

Our Egyptian black cumin seed oil is cold-pressed fresh from the mill from fully ripened Egyptian black cumin seeds from organic farming. It is then only filtered, not deodorized or refined, and is characterized by its golden yellow color and balanced taste. Black cumin seed oil can be heated up to a maximum of 90 °C. As a vital oil, it is enjoyed pure by the spoonful, but is also used as a typical seasoning for oriental dishes.

Effect of black cumin seed oil

Black cumin seed oil is dominated by the essential, doubly unsaturated linoleic acid. Linoleic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. The positive effect is achieved with a daily intake of 10 g of linoleic acid.

There is no official recommended daily dose of black cumin oil in the EU. For adults, a daily dose of 1 to 2 teaspoons has proven to be effective (1 teaspoon of oil corresponds to around 4 grams of oil).

A very special feature of black cumin oil is the high proportion of essential oils, which - depending on the year of harvest and cultivation conditions - is between 0.5 g and 2.5 g per 100 g. In addition, there are bitter and tannins such as nigellin and thymoquinone. They give black cumin oil its distinctly intense, typical flavor, but also explain its popularity for a variety of folkloric applications.

Secondary plant substance thymoquinone

Thymoquinone is a secondary plant substance that belongs to the group of bioactive substances known as terpenes. Terpenes play an important role in the plant kingdom and fulfill various functions such as protecting against pests, attracting pollinators and defending against pathogens. Terpenes also contribute to the characteristic scents and aromas of many other plants. For example, they are contained in the essential oils of citrus fruits, conifers and flowers such as lavender and rosemary.

Thymoquinone has a characteristic aroma profile that is often described as spicy, earthy and slightly bitter. It exudes a strong, aromatic scent that is sometimes compared to a hint of black pepper, oregano or thyme. Our black cumin seed oils currently have a thymoquinone content of 703 mg/100 g.

Black cumin oil capsules or pure?

Black cumin seed oil is available pure and in capsules. Capsules are suitable for a tasteless intake. They are also easy to dose. Ideally, black cumin oil capsules are vegan and free from artificial flavors, colorings, preservatives, flavor enhancers or other chemical additives.

The black cumin plant

Black cumin (Nigella sativa) belongs to the buttercup family and is not related to caraway. The seeds of the plant are small, angular and, as the name suggests, black.

Black cumin was once known in this country as "bread root" and grew in many farm gardens before it was forgotten. According to one anecdote, Martin Luther omitted the crucial word "black" before "caraway" when translating the Bible from Hebrew at the crucial point when it came to the spice, thus contributing to misunderstandings. Be that as it may, one thing is certain: black cumin was already widespread in Egypt and surrounding countries at the time of the pharaohs and was used for a wide variety of purposes (even today, the best qualities thrive in Egypt).

Filtered or unfiltered black cumin seed oil - treasures from Egypt

Black cumin seed oil
Unfiltered black cumin seed oil
tastes intensely aromatic
strong flavor, slightly spicy
contains essential oils and fatty by-products
also contains valuable lees and suspended matter
can be enjoyed pure by the spoonful
due to its pungent taste, dose with caution

At Ölmühle Solling, we have been producing mill-fresh black cumin oil from organically grown and fully ripened Egyptian black cumin seeds for over 20 years.

We have been offering this Egyptian treasure in unfiltered form since this spring. The unfiltered black cumin seed oil is characterized by a darker color and a stronger, slightly pungent taste; the sediment contains valuable substances that are normally filtered out. The essential, double unsaturated linoleic acid dominates in black cumin seed oil. The high proportion of essential oils, bitter substances and tannins explain the popularity of black cumin seed oil for a variety of applications in folklore.

Black cumin oil for dogs

Our black cumin seed oil can also be used as a feed additive for dogs and horses, but acceptance can vary from dog to dog, as black cumin seed cake has a naturally bitter taste. Caution: Black cumin seed oil and black cumin seed cake are poisonous for cats as, unlike horses and dogs, they cannot completely break down bitter substances.

Black cumin seed cake for horses and dogs

The press cake, which is produced when black cumin is cold-pressed, is a high-quality feed for horses and dogs. It is unsuitable for cats due to the bitter substances. In veterinary medicine, it is mainly used for asthma and respiratory diseases. Black cumin is also used for allergic reactions, where it is said to have an antiparasitic effect and strengthen the immune system.

Our organic black cumin seed cake for horses and dogs is obtained from Egyptian black cumin seeds by partial de-oiling using cold pressing. This very gentle cold pressing at below 40 °C preserves the valuable ingredients in their best form. The press cake is free from additives and contains valuable unsaturated fatty acids and bitter substances.

Schwarzkümmelöl verwende ich seit kurzem in meinem Müsli. Diese für mich neue Sorte schmeckt absolut fantastisch!! Was aber gar nicht geht ist dieser neuen Ausgiesser! Beim Ausgiessen tropft es ständig an der Flasche entlang oder beim zurückschrauben wird der Metallverschluss ganz ölig. Ich verschwende täglich ein... mehr >>
Blatt Haushaltspapier um es sauber zu bekommen. Im Kühlschrank habe ich mittlerweile dafür eine Untertasse unter der Flasche gelegt. Die früheren Ausgiesser waren doch super. Damit ist nichts bequemer geworden, sondern einfach missraten. Wie schade! Mein Vorschlag: Die Öle mit normalem Ausgiesser anbieten, so wie es die meisten Öl Marken tun. Bei der Bestellung dem Kunde die Möglichkeit geben ein wiederverwendbaren (ökologischer!) Ausgiesser der neuen Sorten mit zu bestellen. P.S. So wirbt Ölmühle Solling : "Die neuen Springdosierer sind dichter und verhindern das Auslaufen bzw. Verkleben der Flaschen." Das ganze Gegenteil ist der Fall! Zwei Punkte Abzug dafür.

Diese Charge war leider, entgegen der gewohnten Qualität die hervorragend ist, etwas zu bitter und scharf. Ist bisher, bei weit über 20 bestellten Flaschen, das erste Mal aufgetreten.
from Susanne Kreft-Kopelke at 03.06.2023
Ein frisches Öl mit intensiven Geschmack. Ich hatte eine kleine Flasche zum Ausprobieren bestellt. Aber zum pur Einnehmen schmeckt es mir leider nicht.
from Arthur Pflaumbaum at 23.08.2023
Sehr starker Eigengeschmack. Nur pur eingenommen, damit das Öl schnell "runter" war. Daher auch gar nicht erst in die ganze Mahlzeit eingerührt
from Uwe Raatz at 12.07.2024
Erstmalig bei der letzten Lieferung bestellt. Schmeckt pur gar nicht mal so übel. Eine Bewertung über die Wirkung ist noch nicht möglich.
