Organic Ground Turmeric
Turmeric is a member of the ginger family. It is bright yellow in colour, which can make a dish stand out and come alive.
Turmeric is an essential ingredient in curry powder.
It also has many medicinal properties, and has been used in India for centuries.
To retain freshness and flavour store Turmeric in an airtight container, in a cool dry place.
The volatile oil fraction of turmeric has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity in a variety of experimental models. Even more potent than its volatile oil is the yellow or orange pigment of turmeric, which is called curcumin. Curcumin is thought to be the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric. In numerous studies, curcumin's anti-inflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to hydrocortisone as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents. Unlike these pharmaceutical drugs, which are associated with significant toxic effects, curcumin produces no toxicity.
