Red basil is an annual plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family. The herb contains high concentrations of “anthocyanin” agents, renowned for their antioxidant properties, which render the herb a dark purple color. Red basil is very popular in Eastern Europe, where it is most commonly used in salads. Red basil can be used in meat roasts, fish dishes and cheese plates or simply to garnish a dish. In popular medicine, Red Basil is known for its medicinal properties in treating digestive problems.
