In the food industry turmeric is used as an edible dye, so it participates in colouring soups, sauces, cheeses, pastas and butter.
On the other hand, due to its beneficial effects, it has also been discovered by manufacturers of health-conscious food products, and today it is sold in capsules, powdered, mixed with other spices and herbs by many to consume on a regular basis. Its main active ingredient is curcumin, so we make sure to keep a product with a high curcumin content above 2% in stock. We recommend our steam-sterilized turmeric powder product for direct consumption.
It is an ingredient in many spice blends, including curry powders, which gives it its yellowish colour.
Turmenic is produced in huge quantities in India, which is the world’s first turmeric producer and exporter, we also get our ground and whole turmeric from there. We consume the root of the turmeric plant, most of the fruit is sold ground to a powder.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight.
