Botanical name: Curcuma longa

We source Organic Turmeric Powder from India and pack it in a recyclable, amber coloured, glass jar with an airtight induction seal, on receipt of your order, to maximise freshness.

Turmeric Powder, with a bright yellowish orange colour, is prepared from the dried roots of the Curcuma longa, a perennial plant of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). Turmeric is native to tropical South Asia, and grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia. It has a rich, woody aroma with citrus, floral and gingery/ peppery taste. The flavour is mildly sour and bitter, slightly pungent, warm and musky. It is an essential spice in Indian, Moroccan, and Middle Eastern cuisines. Turmeric has been used in Asia for thousands for years as a spice, dye, food colouring, and in Indian traditional medicine.

Turmeric Powder is used in rice, vegetables, beans, chicken, fish, meat, eggs and soup, added to smoothies or Golden Milk. Many Persian dishes use Turmeric as a starter ingredient, and when combined with dried limes, is used to flavor a Middle Eastern stew of meat, lentils, onions and tomatoes that is served over rice. In India, Asia and South Africa, turmeric is added to boiled white rice for a rich, golden color. Turmeric is mostly used in savory dishes but also in sweet dishes like Lebanese Sfouf cake. It has now become fashionable to commercially use it in a wide range of food products including baked goods, biscuits, canned beverages, cake icings, cereals, dairy products, ice cream, orange juice, sauces, yellow cakes and yogurt.

Turmeric is a central ingredient in many spice blends like Indian curry powder, Moroccan Ras El Hanout and pastes. It is an ingredient in Worcestershire sauce and is often used as the colouring agent in yellow mustard, relishes, and pickles.

Turmeric works well with Cilantro, Coriander, Cumin, Fennel seed, Ginger, Mustard seed, Paprika and Pepper.

Turmeric Powder should be handled carefully as it can leave a yellow stain on your hands, utensils and clothing. Place the washed utensils and clothing under sunlight for the yellow stain to fade away. The stain on the hands will usually fade within a day.
