Why cilantro has such a polarizing taste


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the American Chemical Society’s Reactions series and features a look at why cilantro has such a polarizing taste.

Cilantro is grown in warm climates all over the world, with the largest exporter being Mexico, which is why it appears on a variety of different Mexican food dishes.

But the seemingly innocuous herb draws a wide variety of reactions, with some people who love it and some people who can’t stand it.
