Cilantro

Cilantro

Cilantro is a tender herb (also known as leaf coriander) with gentle leaves that are best to add either raw or near the end of cooking in order to maintain their delicate flavor and texture.   Use in Mexican salsas, Indian curries, or your other favorite dishes.


Cilantro is a rich source of vitamin B2, B3, folic acid, beta-carotene, and vitamin C.  It's a good source of minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium, and it's one of the richest herbal sources for vitamin K.  Cilantro's deep-green leaves possess good amounts of anti-oxidant polyphenolic flavonoids and essential volatile oils that work synergistically to boost the body's overall immune system against infection.
