Cilantro, also known as coriander, is a herbal plant readily used in cooking and alternative medicine. Nutritionally, the herb is considered to be a good source of lipids and contains linalool, an essential oil. Furthermore, the herb has been used traditionally for its anti-epileptic, anti-depressant, and anti-inflammatory effects.
Research has found that cooking with cilantro can prevent the development of heterocyclic amines (HCAs) that arise when meat is cooked at high temperatures. High consumption of HCAs has been linked to an increased risk of cancer.
Cilantro has become one of the most popular herbs in the past 20 years. With its popularity falling close behind basil. In my experience, either you love cilantro or you hate it, there is no in between, but those who love it, they really love it.
