About Organic Fresh Turmeric

Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavour with a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger. While it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it also gives mustard its bright yellow colour.

Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Turmeric is sometimes called "Indian saffron" because of its deep yellow-orange colour and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye.

Research suggests Curcumin may provide an inexpensive, well-tolerated, and effective treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Crohn's and ulcerative colitis.

Turmeric's combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects explains why many people with joint disease find relief when they use the spice regularly. In a recent study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin was compared, in effectiveness, to the drug phenylbutazone and produced comparable improvements in shortened duration of morning stiffness, lengthened walking time, and reduced joint swelling.

Turmeric is an excellent source of both iron and manganese and a good source of vitamin B6, dietary fibre and potassium.

Karen Neave Having tried this fresh turmeric recently I never want to go back to using the dried form from supermarkets again. The extra flavour you get from using the roots like this is amazing. I love it.
