About This Food

Description

Cilantro is the leaf of the young coriander plant, Coriandrum sativum, an herb in the Umbelliferae, or parsley family.

Cilantro is grown in California and is traditionally used in Middle Eastern, Mexican, and Asian cooking.

With a fragrant mix of parsley and citrus flavors, new research shows that cilantro may be a powerful detoxifier.
