The Medicinal Properties of Cilantro

Cilantro (coriandrum sativum), also known as coriander, is an annual herb with a pungent flavor used in a variety of Hispanic and Indian dishes. While many people love the taste of cilantro, others despise it and even say it tastes like soap. This is because of genetics. Olfactory receptors, the neurons that are responsible for recognizing odor compounds, is the reason cilantro tastes like soap to some people. These receptors allow people to taste the aldehydes in the leaves. Aldehydes are also found in detergents, soaps and lotion.
