friends plz suggest about it

There are lots of articles about thymoquinone ,but as as food application specialist( as my main concern in connection to this article);I would rather add (black cumin) nigella sativa seed as inclusions and topping for savory biscuits and cookies than as pure extract… It’s simple and the presence of visible seeds is more practical and adds to the visual appeal and savory taste and texture in the end product.

Black coconut shell colour and is being used in ciabatta with sesame seeding on top. A flavour like black cumin can fit in with this theme as well, or chilli flake and cumin.

Hello Abdullah black seed oil is a really good oil. The product you intend to use is also an oil that oxidizes very quickly. It should be used immediately after the seed oil is removed. Before using black seed oil, you can minimize oxidation by blending it with maltodextrin and bonding it. Try using it in the biscuit dough after this process. This will prevent the repellent odor caused by peroxide degradation. If you want more details, you can reach at argemeyna@hotmail.com.
