Turmeric

Available in
40g ECO Pack

Turmeric is the richly coloured ground root of a tropical South Asian plant of the Ginger family.
Turmeric powder has a warm, bitter, pepper-like flavor and earthy, mustard-like aroma.

Suggested Uses

  • Often combined with spicy, exotic spices in traditional Indian or Asian vegetable dishes.
  • Add early on during the cooking process.

Extracts of turmeric are used commercially as a food colourant, and domestically used to add colour to food.

Be careful of spills as it has a tendency to stain.

The Variety

Turmeric is the dried and ground rhizome of Curcuma longa, in the ginger family (Zingiberaceae).
It is native to Southeast Asia.

For Your Appreciation

Mild and earthy in flavour, Turmeric is used to give a most attractive natural colouring to food. Often used as a replacement for more expensive Saffron to add colour to food.
