Celery seed oil is traded with increasing demand on world markets. This oil is produced by steam distillation of the seeds and is used primarily for flavouring of foods. Trace amounts are used in fine perfumes. Both celery seed oil and celery seed extract have FEMA GRAS registration enabling trade as flavour products within the USA. Trade is established in international markets. The aim of this project was to identify a celery variety, for use in local production of steam-distilled herb oil, for the flavour and fragrance market. Initially the product is aimed at the domestic market but later also for export. In addition, the same or a further variety could provide seed oil for use as a therapeutic good.
