Turmeric Ground - Certified Organic
Turmeric: prized for its vivid orange colour, turmeric gives an earthy, warm taste to curries and middle eastern dishes. Add to tofu, egg, sauces, stews and casseroles. It brings the flavours together and adds colour.
In india and other parts of asia, turmeric is used to treat many health conditions. Curcumin is the the main active ingredient responsible for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is a powerful antioxidant (significantly more so than vitamin E or C) and this ability to neutralise free radicals before they damage healthy cells and cell membranes, in conjunction with its anti-inflammatory effects (via a number of pathways), contribute to its role in preventing or alleviating an impressive array of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, cardiovascular disease and liver ailments. The spice (and supplement) comes from the underground stems (rhizomes) of the turmeric plant.
