Product Details

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a bright yellow-orange spice that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and culinary practices. It contains an active compound called curcumin, which is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Here are various uses of turmeric:

Culinary Uses:

  1. Curry Spice: Turmeric is a key ingredient in curry powder, a popular spice blend used in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisines. It imparts a vibrant color and warm, slightly bitter flavor to curries.

  2. Spice in Savory Dishes: Turmeric is commonly used to season a variety of savory dishes, including rice, lentils, soups, stews, and vegetable dishes.

  3. Golden Milk: Turmeric is a central ingredient in golden milk, a traditional Ayurvedic beverage. Golden milk is made by combining turmeric with milk (dairy or plant-based) and other spices like ginger and cinnamon.

  4. Tea: Turmeric tea is a popular beverage, especially for its potential health benefits. It can be made by steeping turmeric powder or fresh turmeric slices in hot water.

  5. Smoothies and Juices: Turmeric can be added to smoothies and juices to provide a nutritional boost and add a subtle earthy flavor.

  6. Marinades: Turmeric is used in marinades for meats, poultry, and fish. It not only imparts flavour but also contributes to the color of the dish.

  7. Pickles and Chutneys: Turmeric is often used in pickling spice blends and chutneys, providing both flavor and color to these condiments.

Medicinal Uses:

  1. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, is known for its anti-inflammatory effects. It may help reduce inflammation in the body and alleviate symptoms associated with inflammatory conditions.

  2. Antioxidant Benefits: Turmeric possesses antioxidant properties that help neutralize free radicals, potentially contributing to overall health and well-being.

  3. Joint Health: Some people use turmeric supplements or incorporate it into their diet for joint health, believing it may help manage conditions like arthritis.

  4. Digestive Aid: Turmeric is used traditionally to aid digestion. It may help relieve symptoms of indigestion and bloating.

  5. Liver Support: Turmeric is believed to have liver-protective properties. It may support liver health and detoxification processes.

  6. Heart Health: Some studies suggest that turmeric may have cardiovascular benefits, including potential positive effects on cholesterol levels and blood vessel function.

  7. Skin Health: Turmeric is used topically in some cultures for its potential benefits to the skin. It may be applied as a paste to soothe minor skin irritations or used in skincare products.

  8. Wound Healing: In traditional medicine, turmeric has been applied to wounds for its potential antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in the healing process.


While turmeric is generally safe for most people when used in culinary amounts, concentrated supplements or extracts may interact with certain medications or cause gastrointestinal issues in high doses. Individuals with gallbladder issues, bleeding disorders, or those taking anticoagulant medications should consult with a healthcare professional before using turmeric supplements. Always choose high-quality turmeric powder for culinary use to ensure the best flavor and nutritional content.
