Cilantro is a herb commonly used in many culinary. The other variant of cilantro, which is coriander, is also used in many cuisines.

It is a good source of antioxidants. Using cilantro to flavour food may encourage people to use less salt and reduce their sodium intake.

Along with anti-cancer effects, pain management,anti-fungal and skin health, it also plays a role of natural preservative.

Include cilantro in food to enhance flavour and taste without adding any fat and sodium enriched seasoning.

Cilantro pairs well with many dishes, especially Mexican or Thai meals. It also works well with dishes that contain beans, cheese, eggs, and fish. The herb is also great with creamy vegetable dips and as a topping or garnish for soups and salads.
