CORIANDER

CRISTA offers you the most premium grade Coriander sourced from the growing regions in Gujarat and Rajasthan. Our supplier base has been built over four decades of trust and our spices frequently sampled to pass American Spice Trade Association (ASTA) specifications for cleanliness.

Origin

Coriander is an ancient annual herb, native to Southern Europe, and a member of the carrot family. In recent times, India has emerged as the main producers of coriander in the world.

Forms

Leaves (often referred to as cilantro) and seed or ground form (referred to as coriander).

How to Store

Coriander is one of the more difficult spices to store. Wrap cilantro in paper towels and store in a plastic bag or place stems in water and refrigerate. Store seeds in an airtight bottle in a cool place away from light.

Taste

Coriander seeds taste sweet and warm, with a clear hint of orange peel.

Crista Tips

Buy whole seeds; Coriander is easy to grind but ground Coriander loses its fragrance quickly. Try dry roasting the seeds before crushing and grinding just before adding to Indian curries. Fresh leaves produce the best flavor when added at the end of cooking.
SCIENTIFIC REMEDIES OF CORIANDER:
  • Soothing Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Used as a diuretic
  • Easing chronic constipation
  • Relieves anxiety and insomnia
DID YOU KNOW?

European Coriander is more flavorful than Indian Coriander because of its higher concentration of volatile oils. When buying cilantro, try to buy leaves with their roots intact. These keep the leaves fresh.

CRISTA QUALITY CONTROL TIP:

Spices should ideally be stored between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius. Under ideal conditions, ground spices will keep for 1 year and whole spices for 2 years. Tightly close the container immediately after use and return it to a cold storage space as soon as possible.
