- An herb is defined as "a plant that is valued for flavor, scent, or other qualities."
- Culinary use of the term "herb" typically distinguishes between herbs, which are from the leafy green parts of a plant, and spices, which come from other parts of the plant, including seeds, berries, bark, root and fruit.
- Culinary herbs are distinguished from vegetables in that, like spices, they are used in small amounts and provide flavor rather than substance to food.
