Known as the poor man’s saffron, turmeric is an ancient spice whose use dates back to the time of the Egyptian pharaohs. Highly prized by both Muslims and Indo-Europeans, it is just coming into its own in the West where research is beginning to confirm its benefits.
According to Mark Blumenthal, executive director of the American Botanical Council based in Austin, Texas, “The high degree of reverence for turmeric is evidenced by the fact that its is used in nearly all Asian cultures, each having its own name for the spice.” In Chinese traditional medicine it is known as “Jiang Huang”.
Our turmeric powder, peeled and degummed, gives you a potent form of this special herb. Use as flavoring for Asian dishes, or as natural
coloring for special foods.
