Our story… why we source and supply organic Turmeric powder

Turmeric has been used in Ayurveda medicine for thousands of years and now the science is starting to show why. One of the main areas of research is that turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties due to its curcumin contain.  Cyndi uses turmeric extensively in her cooking and our Turmeric Powder is organic, contains no fillers, additives or preservatives and has not been irradiated*.

 

Turmeric comes from the plant Curcuma longa which is a member of Zingiberaceae family.  Ginger is also a member of this family.  Our organic turmeric powder has been organically grown in Sri Lanka.  The root is harvested, dried and ground in to a powder.  Fresh grounded and immediately packed to maintain the oils.  Nothing is added or extracted.  There are no fillers, additives or preservatives.   The powder is not irradiated at any stage.

*Irradiation is a process that uses radiation to kill bacteria and extend the shelf life of food. Radiation doses vary for different food stuffs, however the dose limit for spices is usually higher because they are consumed in very small quantities. Irradiated cat food has been banned in Australia since 2009.

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda medicine as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, for liver problems and digestive issues to name just a few.  Research is currently looking in to many of these claims; Pubmed has over 1500 articles related to Turmeric.  The main compound in Turmeric that is being tested is curcumin.  Curcumin supplements are now becoming available; these may not always be extracted from Turmeric.  The curcumin tablets are retailed to reduce inflammation.  Long term inflammation is linked to many life style diseases.  Natural turmeric powder not only contains curcumin, there are many other minerals such as manganese, iron, copper and potassium. 

Including turmeric in your diet adds colour and flavour.  Turmeric gives food a beautiful rich yellow colour.  It is one of the main spices used in curries.  Turmeric has a peppery, warm, and slightly bitter flavour.  It is best to consume turmeric with black pepper and fat has they both help with the absorption of the compound curcumin.   Turmeric is a versatile spice and can be used to make curries, casseroles, sprinkled on roasted vegetables, used to make a spice rub, added to rice and soups.  Turmeric can also be used to make a tea or broth drink.  This wonderful spice can even be added to sweet dishes.
