Seed, known to be an embryo possessing part of a plant, enclosed in a protective outer covering, does not have much utilization known to us. Seeds which are generally thrown away as a waste product have various benefits hidden among themselves. In this review paper, seeds and their different utilizations have been highlighted. We see that seeds, because of their concealed polyphenols and antimicrobial activities, serve us with various medicinal purposes. By-products such as seed flour and seed oil derived from them are enriched with nutrition value and antioxidant properties. Thus, instead of being wasted and withered, proper utilization of seeds should be done.
