Parsley is one of the most popular, versatile herbs, originating in the Mediterranean, but now grown in England, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Parsley, or Petroselinum crispum, is a member of the Umbelliferae family, related to parsnip, celery, dill, and many other common vegetables and herbs. It is most often used as a garnish or in a blend with other herbs for fresh, earthy flavor and brightness. While often used as a colorful garnish in recipes, Parsley Flakes can also add a wealth of health benefits. Rich in flavonoids and volatile oils, this antioxidant-rich herb can be helpful in aiding cells in the prevention of damage and increasing oxygen production.
