About Turmeric Powder Organic
A member of the ginger family, turmeric is a robust perennial, native to southern Asia and appreciated there since antiquity as a flavoring, a dye and a medicine. The health benefits of turmeric and curcumin (curcuma longa, the main phenolic compound and active ingredient found in the turmeric plant) are widely accepted as a cornerstone of Ayurvedic medicine. While lacking much conclusive clinical evidence, turmeric supplements—containing more than 300 nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C, plus potassium, zinc, and a host of others—are commonly prescribed by many Western healthcare professionals for a variety of ailments and general wellness goals, with hopes of even reducing the risk of cancer.

How to use
A little ground turmeric goes a long way; the powder, a result of boiling then drying and grinding down the root has a musky, loamy mustard flavor laced with a soft peppercorn heat. Dried turmeric has a complex, rich, woody aroma with floral, citrus and ginger notes. The taste is slightly bitter and sour, moderately pungent. It will add immediate color and enhanced earthiness to preparations like roasts, rice, or scrambled eggs.
