Turmeric is a member of the ginger family, native to South Asia where it has been utilised for thousands of years. Turmeric powder is made from the rhizome or root-like stem of the plant. This ground turmeric is certified Organic and contains 4.97% curcumin. Turmeric powder has a rich yellow colour, a pungent fragrance and a wonderful warm spice flavour, a little bitter, with peppery notes. Loved for its taste and colour, turmeric can be used in a variety of recipes and beverages, complimenting other spices beautifully.
