Coriander has been used as a digestive aid for thousands of years, with evidence of its use dating as far back as 5,000 B.C. It’s mentioned in Sanskrit texts, ancient Egyptian papyri, the Old Testament and the writings of the Greek physician Hippocrates. The Roman armies brought it to Europe, where it was used to preserve meats, and the Chinese believed it counteracted food poisoning.

Coriander grows wild over a wide area of Western Asia and Southern Europe, and archaeological findings point toward cultivation by ancient Egyptians. It also appears to have been cultivated in Greece since at least the second millennium B.C. In 1670, it was first brought to the British colonies of North America and was one of the first spices cultivated by early settlers.
