100g. ORGANIC turmeric/ground turmeric. Turmeric (Curcuma) is one of the oldest known spice plants in Asia. Turmeric became one of the most important Indian spices around 5,000 years ago. At the beginning of the 14th century, the Venetian trader Marco Polo brought the yellow powder from Southeast Asia from one of his trips. The characteristic bright, intense yellow of the turmeric gave the root numerous names (Indian saffron, yellow root, saffron root, turmeric root) and is often used today in the food industry as a natural color for pasta, mustard or rice dishes. The turmeric powder, which belongs to the ginger family, gives its typical color to curry mixes.
Turmeric tastes mildly spicy, woody-floral, earthy, with a slight bitter note. Turmeric goes well with rice and noodle dishes, stews, sauces, soups and mayonnaise. It is part of almost all curries. Be careful when processing, turmeric is very color intensive.
