Coriander Seed is the dried seed of the Coriandrum sativum plant used for herbal Tea, tinctures and salves and is a delicious and flavorful culinary spice.
Oddly enough, Cilantro is the leaf of this same plant, although the flavor is completely different from coriander seed. Cilantro has a unique but mild flavor with hints of citrus, pepper and mint. Coriander is sweet, mild and lemony with a fresh floral taste. Coriander Seed can be roasted to bring out the hidden nutty flavor. Eating just the seeds is a fun, healthy snack & a superior alternative to processed foods.
We love Coriander Seeds both for the culinary uses and herbal benefits. The seeds are loaded with vitamins, minerals and nutrients such as iron, copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, magnesium, Vitamin A, C, Niacin and Riboflavin. The seeds contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds as well!
It's no wonder the seeds are so high on the list of healthy foods and used in many herbalists arsenal of plant medicine.
