Turmeric, colourful spice with multifunctional effect

Turmeric is also called koenjit or Indian turmeric and is extracted from the plant Curcuma Longa. More specifically, from its root. The plant is related to ginger. It has a mildly bitter taste and is regularly used in addition to its flavour to add colour to spice mixes and dishes such as rice. It is also known for its healthy properties. At Natural Spices you can order turmeric in a 500 gram or 1, 5 or 25 kilo package online. Most of the harvest of this spice comes from India. The powder that you can buy online here also comes from India.

Turmeric as a colouring agent

Turmerich is mainly used as a colour. It is a constituent of curry powder. It is therefore not the same as curry, as is sometimes thought. In addition, just as they do in Asian countries, you can use it to give your rice a nice colour. This way you can easily put an attractive, colourful dish on the table. Curcumin is also extracted from the root of the Curcuma Longa, which has been authorised by the European Commission as colour E-100 in foodstuffs.

Use turmeric in dishes

You can also use turmeric in other dishes. It is used mainly, but not exclusively, as a colouring agent. You can add it to chicken and vegetable soup, but also to cooked vegetables. Especially in combination with carrot, pumpkin and sweet potatoes its flavour comes to the fore. You can also mix it with the sweet mashed potatoes, but its flavour will also surprise you in an ordinary mashed potato! Turmeric dissolves well in fats.

To be used as a medicine

Turmeric can also be used as a medicine or painkiller. It is known for its antioxidant properties. The spice binds to poisonous metals and has an anti-inflammatory effect. For this reason it is suspected that it can contribute to combating various types of dementia such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Turmeric owes its health benefits to the presence of the substance curcumin. By the way, your body is not very good at absorbing it. You can improve the absorption of the substance by using black pepper at the same time.
