Coriander is often a forgotten spice in the culinary world. It takes a backseat to other starring spices such as oregano, cumin, and paprika. However, it doesn’t take an all-star chef to utilize the unique flavours that coriander presents. Whole coriander seeds are remnants of cilantro, although it tastes nothing like it’s leafy brother.

Coriander has a very fragrant and aromatic taste, and it can add an interesting flavour profile to many dishes. The earthiness of coriander makes it a good addition to soups such as carrot or any cream-based soups. It can also be used in tomato-based starch dishes such as pasta and lasagna. You would be wise to add it to other dishes such as butternut squash, crab cakes, eggs, curry paste, or even naan bread! Coriander can also be ground up, instead of being used as whole seeds.

There is a high nutritional value to be gained from consuming coriander. It contains essential oils, malic acid, potassium salt, calcium salt, fat, protein, vitamins and nitrogenous substances. Coriander is a suitable addition to heart disease patients since it lacks sodium compared to many other spices.

Health Benefits of Coriander Seeds

1. Coriander contains antioxidants that prevent disease and promote health.

2. The aromatic flavor of coriander is derived from essential oils and fatty acids. The fatty acids in the coriander seed include petroselinic acid, linoleic acid (Omega-6), oleic acid and palmitic acid. In addition to linalool, α-pinene, geraniol, camphene and terpene and other essential oils, these ingredients help with digestion and relieve the bloating effect.

3. Coriander seeds are rich in dietary fibre. 100 grams of dried coriander seed provides approximately 42 grams of fibre. These dietary fibres are metabolized into an insoluble fibre by absorbing water to increase food volume. This promotes digestion and eases the role of constipation.

4. In addition, dietary fibre binds bile salts (produced by cholesterol) and reduces their reabsorption in the colon. This helps to lower bad cholesterol levels in the blood. Coupled with antioxidant flavonoids, the fibre in the coriander can also prevent colon cancer.

5. Coriander seeds are an ideal source of minerals such as iron, copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc and magnesium. The body produces red blood cells, which need copper. Cell metabolism requires iron, while zinc is required to control the growth, development, and production of sperm. Potassium controls the heartbeat and blood pressure.

6. The vitamin content of the coriander seed is high compared to other dry-flavored seeds that do not contain vitamin C. 100 grams of dried coriander seed can provide about 21 mg of vitamin C, equivalent to 35% of the recommended daily intake.

7. In addition to the above nutrients, the coriander also contains thiamine, riboflavin and niacin and other B vitamins.
