Product Name: Dill Seed Oil
Botanical Name of Raw Material: Anethum Sowa Roxb
Dill is an annual herb that hails from the celery family, Apiaceae. Dill seed is similar to caraway in flavour. It also tastes like the fresh or dried dill leaves, often used as a spice. Dill seed oil is obtained by the steam distillation of dried seeds of Anethum Sowa Roxb. The product is a free-flowing liquid, with a yellowish to brownish-yellow colour. It has a characteristic fresh, warm, spicy, carvonic odour. Major components in dill seed oil are Dihydro carvones, carvone and apiol. Indian dill oil is very rich in dill apiole, a molecule used for bio-pesticide formulation. The oil is used for flavouring applications, pharmaceutical preparations and in the manufacture of soaps.
