About

Laurie's Words on Herbs - All about Oregano

Oregano is a common herb used in Greek and Italian cooking among other regions.


Oregano is high in antioxidant activity, due to a high content of phenolic acids and flavonoids. Additionally, oregano has demonstrated antimicrobial activity against food-borne pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes. Both of these characteristics may be useful in both health and food preservation.

The dish most commonly associated with oregano is pizza.


Variations have probably been eaten in Southern Italy for centuries.

In the US returning World War II soliders brought back a taste for what they called "the pizza herb".
