Cilantro, also known as Coriandrum sativum, is a versatile herb that is widely used in culinary traditions around the world, particularly in Latin American, Indian, and Asian cuisines. It's an annual plant in the family Apiaceae, and both its leaves and seeds are used in cooking, although they have very distinct flavors and uses.

The leaves, known as cilantro, have a fresh, citrusy, and slightly peppery flavor that can be a divisive taste; some people adore it, while others find it tastes like soap due to a genetic trait. Cilantro is often used fresh as it loses its flavor when dried. It's a common ingredient in salsa, guacamole, salads, and as a garnish on a variety of dishes.

The seeds of the plant are known as coriander. They have a warm, nutty, spicy, and orange-flavored profile. Coriander seeds are used whole or ground into powder and are a staple in spice blends such as garam masala, curry powder, and Latin American adobos.

In addition to its culinary uses, cilantro has been used medicinally for its anti-inflammatory and digestive properties. It's believed to help with digestion and to have some detoxifying effects, although more scientific research is needed to fully understand its health benefits.

Cilantro is not only valued for its flavor but also for its nutritional content, offering vitamins A, C, and K, along with minerals like potassium and manganese. Its vibrant green leaves are often used to add a burst of color and freshness to dishes just before serving to preserve their delicate flavor and nutritional value.
