Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years and is a major part of Ayurvedic medicine. Turmeric Powder is a ground, dried rhizome that is used both for its flavour and colour. The bright yellow to orange powder imparts a strong golden hue to any dish. Be careful not to spill any, as it also stains clothes! It has an earthy, natural, mustard-like aroma.
Recent research has shown promising benefits of turmeric, including its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. If you mix turmeric with honey it works wonderfully to treat sore throats and cough.
