Product Abstract

Modern dehydration practices ensure that the dill weed stays extremely green and flavorful, making this herb a colorful and tasty addition to many dishes. It has a light, sweet flavor that is best added to a dish right before serving. Dill weed is popular in Greek, Slavic and Turkish cooking for chicken casserole as well as recipes containing spinach, mushrooms and lamb. German cooking often uses it in dishes showcasing fish, poultry, eggs and cheese.

History

Dill is among the oldest cultivated herbs and has been found in Neolithic grave sites, ancient Greek and Roman ruins, and even the tomb of Amenhotep II, a Pharaoh of Egypt in the 11th century BC.

Safety summary
Hazards  Drug interaction.
Cautions (oral)  Diabetes medication.

Our safety advice
We agree with the IFRA guideline of 1.2% for skin sensitization, but only for ()-carvone. Our dermal limit for (þ)-carvone is 23%, for toxicity. We recommend a human daily oral maximum dose of 12.5 mg/kg for carvone isomers. Therefore, dill weed oil requires no restriction.

Regulatory guidelines
The IFRA standard for either isomer of carvone in leave-on products such as body lotions is 1.2%, for skin sensitization. The Council of Europe (1992) has set an ADI of 1 mg/kg for carvone (isomer not specified). This is equivalent to a daily adult dose of 150–200 mg of dill weed oil.

Organ-specific effects
Adverse skin reactions  Undiluted dill weed oil was not irritating to rabbit, pig or mouse skin; tested at 4% on 25 volunteers it was neither irritating nor sensitizing. It is non-phototoxic.

Cardiovascular effects  Dill oil reduced blood glucose levels in both normal and alloxan-diabetic rats following sc injection at 27 mg/kg.

Systemic effects
Acute toxicity  Dill weed oil acute oral LD50 in rats 4.04 mL/kg; acute dermal LD50 in rabbits>5 g/kg.

Carcinogenic/anticarcinogenic potential Dill weed oil induced chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes and also was genotoxic in fruit flies. However, it significantly induced glutathione S-transferase activity in mouse tissues, as do (þ)-carvone, (þ)-limonene and anethofuran . (þ)-Carvone is not a rodent carcinogen; both carvone and (þ)-limonene display anticarcinogenic activity.

Drug interactions  Antidiabetic medication, because of cardiovascular effects, above.

Comments   Dill weed oil is widely used in canned pickles.
