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.

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

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 produced comparable improvements in a shortened duration of morning stiffness, lengthened walking time, and reduced joint swelling.

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

Love this fresh root turmeric. The flavour is wonderful and you can use from frozen. Just leave out for a few minutes and it can be chopped. Because it's organic there's no need to peel it first. So easy...just freeze and use straight from freezer in everything savoury. Don't forget to add black pepper too to get full health benefits.

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.
