Also called Cilantro. Native to the Mediterranean and Middle East regions, the herb is cultivated in Europe, Morocco, and the United States. Coriander’s delicate young leaves are widely used to flavour salads, sausages, curries, pastries, liqueurs, and confectionery.
Records of the use of Coriander date to 5000 BC. The Romans used the 'seeds,' actually the fruit, to flavor bread. Coriander seed is a traditional spice basic to innumerable recipes.
Coriander is elemental to curry powder, Indian masalas, Ethiopian berebere, and much Latin American cuisine.
The 1997 Commission E on Phytotherapy and Herbal Substances of the German Federal Institute for Drugs recommends Coriander seed for 'Dyspeptic complaints, loss of appetite.'
'Average daily dosage: 3 g of drug; equivalent preparations. Mode of Administration: Crushed and powdered drug, as well as other galenical preparations for internal uses. Powder, dry extracts and other galenical preparations for internal and external use.'
Grieve's classic 'A Modern Herbal': 'Stimulant, aromatic and carminative. The powdered fruit, fluid extract and oil are chiefly used medicinally as flavouring to disguise the taste of active purgatives and correct their griping tendencies. It is an ingredient of the following compound preparations of the Pharmacopceia: confection, syrup and tincture of senna, and tincture and syrup of Rhubarb, and enters also into compounds with angelica gentian, jalap, quassia and lavender. As a corrigent to senna, it is considered superior to other aromatics.'
'If used too freely the seeds become narcotic.'
'Coriander water was formerly much esteemed as a carminative for windy colic.'
King's 1898 Dispensatory: 'Coriander is a stimulant and carminative, and is employed in medicine as an adjuvant or corrigent.'
