Many spices are noted for their high levels of antioxidants, which some believe can help neutralise free radicals, the cause of many diseases, including cancer. The ORAC value is a measure of antioxidants in 100g—for cumin seed it’s 50,372. That’s way more than a glass of healthy Cabernet Sauvignon, which clocks up 4,523.
