Fresh Turmeric Root (often miss-spelled as Tumeric) has a peppery, warm and bitter flavour and a mild fragrance. It is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry and also gives mustard its bright yellow colour. Also available in 100g and 500g quantities.
It can be kept in the freezer, so don't worry about how much you buy! Organico staff use about 5g -10g per person per day per person in their smoothies.
Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Turmeric was traditionally called "Indian saffron" because of its deep yellow-orange colour and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye.
