What is Tumeric?
- Turmeric is sometimes called Indian saffron or the golden spice. The plant is a perennial, rhizomatous, herbaceous plant native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
- Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, and it has powerful biological properties. Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Indian system of treatment, recommends turmeric for a variety of health conditions.
- The bright yellow/orange color of processed turmeric has inspired many cultures to use it as a dye.
- Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
- Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
- Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
- Mason jars make great storage containers.
- Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
