Micro Coriander is crisp and has a sweet, bright citrusy aroma with a clean, bold, classic cilantro flavor finishing with robust notes of pepper and fresh cut grass. It is also most notably without the soapy scent that some say mature coriander possesses.
Coriander is used in many cuisines such as Latin American and Asian cuisines. People may have strong reactions to the flavour of coriander, with some loving it and some hating it. The leaves, stalk, seeds and roots of the plant can be used. Coriander microgreens are delicious added to scrambled eggs, in salsas and guacamole, on top of tacos and curries and in dips. Also very popular in dishes with fish. In addition to the excellent flavour, coriander microgreens are highly nutritious.
Let’s take a closer look at how eating coriander microgreens can boost your wellbeing.
Coriander is a good source of vitamin K. Vitamin K is required for blood coagulation and dark-green leafy vegetables are good sources. Coriander microgreens have a similar concentration of vitamin K as baby spinach. Coriander is also a good source of vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient that acts as an antioxidant. Coriander microgreens have a slightly lower concentration.
Coriander microgreens contain very high levels of the carotenoids lutein/ zeaxanthin, violaxanthin and beta carotene, which are fat soluble antioxidants important for organ function and protecting cellular structures from damage. They contain 3 times more beta carotene than the mature leaves. The concentration of beta carotene in is comparable to that of carrots and sweet potatoes. Lutein/zeaxanthin are carotenoids that act to help prevent age-related eye degeneration and cataract, dark leafy green vegetables are recommended sources. Coriander microgreens are an excellent source of lutein/zeaxanthin and have a higher concentration than red cabbage shoots, peppercress microgreens and baby spinach! Violaxanthin is a carotenoid found in the photosynthetic organs of plants, and cilantro has high concentrations of violaxanthin.
Coriander is an excellent source of alpha-tocopherols (vitamin E). Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant important in immune function. Nuts, seeds and oils are the most common sources of vitamin E, but coriander microgreens are an excellent source and contain much less fat. The concentration of vitamin E in coriander microgreens is over 6 times the amount in a serving of sunflower seeds.
