Caraway, commonly called seed, is actually the dried fruit of Carum carvi. It has a distinctive aroma reminiscent of anise and a warm, slightly sharp taste. It is used as a seasoning in innumerable meat dishes, breads, and cheeses, and in such vegetable dishes as sauerkraut, cabbage and beets.

The 1997 Commission E on Phytotherapy and Herbal Substances of the German Federal Institute for Drugs recommends Caraway for 'Dyspeptic problems such as mild, spastic conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, bloating, and fullness.'
'Daily dosage: 1.5 - 6 g of seeds; equivalent preparations. Mode of Administration: Freshly crushed seeds for infusions as well as for other galenical preparations for internal use. Actions: Antispasmodic; Antimicrobial.'
Grieve's classic 'A Modern Herbal': 'Caraway was widely employed at one time as a carminative cordial, and was recommended in dyspepsia and symptoms attending hysteria and other disorders. It possesses some tonic property and forms a pleasant stomachic.'
'Distilled Caraway water is considered a useful remedy in the flatulent colic of infants, and is an excellent vehicle for children's medicine. When sweetened, its flavour is agreeable.'
'One ounce of the bruised seeds infused for 6 hours in a pint of cold water makes a good Caraway julep for infants, from 1 to 3 teaspoonsful being given for a dose.'
King's 1898 Dispensatory: 'Caraway is an aromatic carminative, used in flatulent colic, especially of children, and to improve the flavor of several medicinal compounds. The oil (Oleum Carui) is more generally used. The seeds are frequently added to cakes and confectionaries, to render them more agreeable, while, at the same time, they gently excite the digestive powers. Dose of the seeds, from 10 to 60 grains.'
Eclectic Materia Medica, 1922 (Felter): 'An aromatic carminative and gentle stomachic; both the fruit and the oil are of value in flatulent colic and to flavor medicinal compounds.'
British Pharmaceutical Codex, 1911: 'The aromatic properties of caraway fruit, due to its volatile oil, are utilised for combination with purgatives, as in Tinctura Sennae Composita and Pilula Aloes Barbadensis. Distilled caraway water is a useful remedy in the flatulent colic of infants, and is an excellent vehicle for children's medicines; when sweetened its flavour is agreeable.'
