Coriander is an annual seed spice crop, which belongs to family Apiaceae. It is native of Mediterranean region.

The essential oil content of the weight of ripe and a dried fruit of coriander varies between 0.03 and 2.6% and the content of fatty oil varies between 9.9 and 27.7%. Coriander leave showed stronger antioxidant activity than the seeds. Coriander lowered the blood sugar when added to the diet of diabetic patients. The antihyperglycemic action of coriander is associated with stimulation of insulin secretion and enhancement of glucose uptake and metabolism by muscle, reflecting the effects of more than one active constituent.
