Book Description

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L., family Umbelliferae/Apiaceae) is one of the most popular spices globally. Different parts of Coriandrum sativum are edible and widely used as a seasoning due to their unique flavor and aroma. Coriandrum sativum medical uses have been recognized since ancient times. Coriander leaves (cilantro) and coriander fruit (seed) are used in different ethnic foodstuffs, meat and poultry dishes, soup, pudding, bread, and seafood dishes. Coriandrum sativum is rich in linalool, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin C, folate, and phenolics. Coriandrum sativum fixed oil is rich in sterols, tocols, and bioactive phytochemicals. Petroselinic acid is the major fatty acid in Coriandrum sativum fixed oil and exhibits health-promoting traits.

Coriandrum sativum is recommended as a food preservative to replace synthetic antioxidants because of its antioxidant and antibacterial traits. Furthermore, Coriandrum sativum cilantro and seeds are rich in water-soluble and lipid-soluble phytochemicals that showed unique anticancer, anxiolytic, neuroprotective, migraine-relieving, hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic, anticonvulsant, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory traits. Those medical benefits and their integration into daily life render Coriandrum sativum an excellent functional food. Regarding the cosmetic industry, Coriandrum sativum is used as an ingredient in conventional Ayurvedic cosmetic formulations to normalize skin color. In addition, Coriandrum sativum volatile oil finds use as an ingredient in perfumes.
