BackgroundCilantro, the leaf of the Coriandrum sativum plant, is an herb that is widely consumed globally and has purported health benefits ranging from antibacterial to anticancer activities. Some individuals report an extreme dislike for cilantro, and this may explain the different cilantro consumption habits between populations. However, the prevalence of cilantro dislike has not previously been reported in any population. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of… Expand

A genetic variant near olfactory receptor genes influences cilantro preference
TLDR
There is a genetic component to cilantro taste perception and cilantro dislike may stem from genetic variants in olfactory receptors, which is proposed to be theOlfactory receptor that contributes to the detection of a soapy smell from cilantro in European populations. Expand
Spices: the savory and beneficial science of pungency.
TLDR
It is suggested that a spicy diet, a caveman-era technology, could be seriously considered in addition to caloric control and exercise as a measurement to prevent and control many chronic diseases associate to malnutrition from a Western diet. Expand
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Taint in Pinot noir: Detection and Consumer Rejection Thresholds of trans-2-Decenal
Brown marmorated stink bug contamination in grape clusters results in the addition of an aroma compound, trans-2-decenal (T2D), to wine. Described as a green, musty aroma, it is consideredExpand

Do polymorphisms in chemosensory genes matter for human ingestive behavior?
TLDR
A growing body of evidence indicates chemosensory variation is far more complex than previously believed, and a monolithic one-size-fits-all approach to bitterness needs to be abandoned. Expand
A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW ON CANCER AND ANTICANCER HERBAL DRUGS

Pairing flavours and the temporal order of tasting
There can be little doubt that plating food beautifully is becoming ever more important in the world of high-end cuisine. However, there is a very real danger that all the attention to how a dishExpand
What Is the Relationship between the Presence of Volatile Organic Compounds in Food and Drink Products and Multisensory Flavour Perception?
TLDR
This narrative review examines the complex relationship that exists between the presence of specific configurations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in food and drink products and multisensory flavour perception and determines congruency relations that modulate the degree of oral referral, and ultimately flavour pleasantness, in the case of familiar foods and beverages.

Essential Oil Composition of Cilantro
TLDR
The data indicate that cilantro oil may exhibit significant variation in composition due to ontogenic factors and suggest a possible link among growth stage, oil composition, and consumer preference. Expand
Studies on the dual antioxidant and antibacterial properties of parsley (Petroselinum crispum) and cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) extracts

Instar-specific defensive secretions of stink bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
Defensive secretions (allomones) from first-instar nymphs of stink bugs in the subfamily Pentatominae contain (E)-4-oxo-2-decenal as a major constituent, whereas this compound is absent from laterExpand
Identification of character-impact odorants in coriander and wild coriander leaves using gas chromatography-olfactometry (GCO) and comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC x GC-TOFMS).
TLDR
The most important odorants in C. sativum and E. foetidum were found to be Z-2-decenal, a co-eluting odour-cluster, and beta-ionone, eugenol, and E-1-dodecanol, the latter of which could not be identified with GC-qMS. Expand

TLDR
Understanding the exact genes and genetic differences that affect food intake may provide important clues in obesity treatment by allowing caregivers to tailor dietary recommendations to the chemosensory landscape of each person. Expand

TLDR
There is a need to employ measurement techniques that are minimally affected by developmental changes in attention, motivation, and other nonsensory factors and increased investigative effort should be directed toward the study of possible developmentalChanges in suprathreshol d perception. Expand
