Botanically, this annual herb belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae) and known scientifically as Satureja hortensis.

The herb is well tolerant to different climatic conditions and requires good sunlight to flourish.

It reaches about 40-60 cm in height. Its sister variety,

winter-savory, known as Satureja montana, has sharp,

pungent flavor and hence, less preferred in cooking.

Savory leaves and tender shoots carry incredibly high-quality chemical compounds that are known to have been antioxidant,

disease preventing and health promoting properties.

Besides, dietary fiber in this herb helps reduce LDL or bad cholesterol

while increasing HDL or good cholesterol levels.

Savory leaves contain many essential volatile oil phenols such as thymol and carvacrol,

as well as compounds like linalool, camphene, caryophyllene, terpineol, myrcene, and other terpenoids.

Thymol, one of the important essential oils, has scientifically been found to have antiseptic,

anti-fungal characteristics.

Also, another phenolic compound,

carvacrol in the herb inhibits the growth of many strains of bacteria including E. coli, and Bacillus cereus.

Carvacrol, therefore, has been used as healthy food additive and preservative for its anti-bacterial properties.

It also gives pleasant tangy taste and marjoram like flavor to the food.
