Discover our natural coriander flavour
Also known as cilantro or Chinese parsley, coriander can refer to both a plant or a spice. Coriander is an aromatic plant native to southern Europe and the Middle East. Often used in Asian cuisine, coriander has a sweet citrus taste, slightly aniseed. The coriander leaves can be added to a salad, a pie or a cake.
Coriander spice benefits
Since Ancient Greece, coriander was recommended as a medicine. During the medieval and Renaissance period, coriander was used as an aphrodisiac. Consumed with wine, it was said to stimulate the passions. But today, it is mainly used to cover the taste of unpleasant medicines.
The coriander seeds are used as a spice and they taste very different from the leaves. Hence, you need to be careful when reading a recipe to make sure if the author intended to use the seeds or the leaves.
Coriander seeds are often toasted before using, and ground coriander can be use as a spice to flavour curries, sausages, liqueurs and confectionery. On the other hand, the leaves are often added at the last minute to garnish a salad or stir-fried vegetables. The leaves are widely used in Indian, Latin American and Chinese cuisine.
