Other producers include Syria (7%), Turkey (6%) and Iran (6%) with the remaining 11% coming from other countries around North Africa and the Middle East.
In total, Around 300,000 tons of cumin per year are produced worldwide. In 2007, India produced around 175,000 tons of cumin on an area of about 410,000 ha. with the average yield is 0.43 tons per hectare.

Cumin seed is used as a spice for its distinctive flavour and aroma. The oil is extremely popular in many cuisines as a flavouring ingredient,  particularly South Asian, Northern African and Latin American cuisines.

As an therapeutic ingredient it boasts lots of health benefits. This essential oil can be attributed to its properties as a bactericidal, carminative, digestive, diuretic, antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, detoxifier, stimulant, nervine, and tonic substance.
