Coriander also known as cilantro, is a fresh herb that has a long culinary history and therapeutical use since the era of the ancient Egyptians. Cilantro can help cleanse the body of toxic metals and is a reliable source of antioxidants. A small amount delivers the full daily value of vitamin A and K and is rich in vitamin C, potassium, and manganese. Cilantro is a great, low-calorie option for those who want to add more nutrients and flavour to their diet. Cilantro features prominently in Chinese cooking and are frequently used to garnish Chinese salads, or chopped up and mixed in dressings and sauces. While often referred to as Chinese parsley in Asian cookbooks (Mexican parsley is another common nickname), cilantro has a stronger, more distinct flavour than parsley.
