Frontier Co-op Turmeric Root, Ground, Organic 1 lb

1.05 Each

Product Overview

Our Organic Ground Turmeric Root has a minimum 4% curcumin content. Curcumin is a group of antioxidant compounds found in the rhizome. It is golden-yellow in color, with a pungent earthy, distinctive aroma. Its flavor resembles both ginger and pepper. Indispensable in curry powders and East Indian cooking, turmeric is also used in prepared mustards and pickles, dressings, eggs and rice dishes.

Throughout history it was used as both a condiment and dye. Traded on ancient spice routes, Marco Polo made note of this plant. It's been widely used in Hindu wedding ceremonies, being associated with fertility and prosperity. Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and other traditional Indian medicine systems have relied on this pungent spice for centuries. Frontier organic bulk turmeric is kosher certified and non-irradiated.
