Rhus coriaria, commonly known as sumac, is a deciduous shrub or small tree belonging to the Anacardiaceae family. The plant has compound leaves with serrated edges and produces small greenish flowers that develop into clusters of red berries. Rhus coriaria is native to the Mediterranean region, as well as parts of the Middle East and Central Asia.

The berries of Rhus coriaria are dried and ground to produce sumac powder, which is widely used as a culinary spice, particularly in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. Sumac powder has a unique flavour profile characterized by its tangy, tart, and slightly citrusy taste. It adds a refreshing acidity to dishes without being overly sour. Sumac powder typically ranges in colour from deep red to burgundy, imparting a vibrant hue to foods when used as a seasoning or garnish. In Middle Eastern cuisine, it is a staple spice, used in dishes like salads, kebabs, and rice pilaffs.

-It has been traditionally used to reduce inflammation in the body, potentially offering relief from conditions like arthritis and inflammatory bowel diseases.

-Sumac powder may aid digestion.

-Some studies suggest that sumac powder may have antimicrobial properties, helping to fight against certain bacteria and fungi.
