Culantro Oil

Wild coriander, spiny coriander, South American cilantro or culantro oil is obtained from Eryngium foetidum L. It possesses a lot of similarity to cilantro oil obtained from the leaves of Coriandrum sativum L.

In addition, trace amounts (< 0.05%) of tridecane, α-copaene, trans-α-bergamotene, germacrene A, cis-linalool oxide-furanoid, (E)-2- tetradecenol, 1-octen-3-ol, linalool, (E)-nerolidol, eugenol, 2-undecanone, β-ionone isomer, (E)-2-decenal and (E)-2-hexadecenal were also found in this oil. Furthermore, the authors found that (E)-2-dodecenal, which was the most abundant component, contributed the greatest odor activity. Other important contributors to the aroma of the oil were eugenol, a trimethylbenzaldehyde isomer, β-ionone, (Z)-4-dodecenal, dodecanal and (E)-2-tetradecenal.
